KORU Medical Systems Announces a New Feasibility Study with a Commercialized Oncology Biologic

MAHWAH, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KORU Medical Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: KRMD) (“KORU Medical” or the “Company”), a leading medical technology company focused on development, manufacturing, and commercialization of innovative and patient-centric large volume subcutaneous infusion solutions, today announced a collaboration with a global pharmaceutical company to initiate a feasibility study with KORU Medical’s Freedom Infusion System (the “Freedom System”) for an FDA and EMA approved subcutaneous oncology biologic drug, that is currently being delivered via a manual syringe administration by a healthcare professional.

The Freedom System is a purely mechanical ambulatory drug delivery device with 11 drugs approved on the label and over 40,000 patients globally. The system is designed to deliver large volumes of biologic medications from 2mL to over 100mL subcutaneously. The Freedom System is capable of allowing patients to self-administer their therapy at home and/or by healthcare professionals in a clinic setting.

Conversion of IV biologics to subcutaneous administration formulations is a growing trend in the oncology market. Evidence suggests subcutaneous administration of oncology therapy simplifies treatment, reduces pressure on hospitals, and improves patients’ quality of life.1 With the development of new subcutaneous drug therapies, there is an opportunity to develop drug delivery administration solutions which will optimize drug administration for healthcare providers and patients.

“This collaboration presents an exciting, new opportunity to enter the growing oncology subcutaneous biologic market to solve significant unmet needs in the delivery of this life-saving therapy with our patient-centric solutions,” said Linda Tharby, KORU Medical’s President and CEO. Linda Tharby went on to say, “There are multiple subcutaneous oncology biologics currently approved using manual administration with an estimate of over one million global infusions. Upon successful completion of the feasibility study, we anticipate progressing to commercialization of the Freedom System for this drug within the following 12 months.”
