Nexstim Plc Updates the Timeline for its Supplementary E-FIT Phase III Trial in Stroke Rehabilitation

(May 19, 2017)

Company announcement, Helsinki, 19 May 2017 at 9:00 am

Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company"), a  medical  technology company developing and marketing pioneering navigated  non-invasive  brain stimulation systems  for both therapeutic  and diagnostic  applications, today provided a timeline update for its supplemental Phase III clinical trial in stroke rehabilitation, known as E-FIT (ELECTRIC FIELD NAVIGATED 1HZ RTMS FOR POST-STROKE MOTOR RECOVERY TRIAL).

The trial began enrolment in March of 2017.  Start-up issues at some of the enrolling sites have created a slight delay in the enrolment rate and Nexstim now expects the E-FIT trial to be completed in Q2 2018. This change in timing has no significant impact on the costs associated with the E-FIT trial. We are now encouraged by the recent rate of patient enrolment.

The E-FIT clinical trial, which is evaluating Nexstim's NBTŪ system, is designed to provide data to supplement the completed Phase III NICHE trial. The supplemental trial is being conducted at five clinical sites in the U.S.A. and is expected to recruit a total of 60 subjects.
