    Spectral Medical Files Expanded Access Protocol With FDA for Toraymyxin(TM) Septic Shock Treatment
    08:00 EDT Tuesday, May 31, 2016
    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - Spectral Medical Inc. ("Spectral" or the "Company"), (TSX:EDT) (OTCQX:EDTXF), a Phase III Company advancing a precision treatment targeting specific patients at high risk of death from septic shock, today announced that it has filed a protocol and is in discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Expanded Access of Toraymyxin™, the Company's investigational therapeutic hemoperfusion device that removes endotoxin from the bloodstream. The Company also announced several significant updates and milestones achieved on its path to potential regulatory approval and anticipated commercial availability of its treatment in the United States.

    The Expanded Access program, sometimes referred to as Compassionate Use, if approved by the FDA, would begin upon the completion of patient enrollment - expected no later than June 30, 2016 - at most of the 29 U.S. hospitals currently participating in the Phase III EUPHRATES clinical trial. Patients who meet the clinical criteria for septic shock, are in multiple organ failure and who have elevated levels of endotoxin in the blood, as measured by the Company's FDA cleared Endotoxin Activity Assay (EAA™), would be eligible for the treatment. A similar program is planned for Canada, where there are 12 hospitals engaged in the clinical trial.

    "Currently, there is no approved treatment for patients in septic shock, the most advanced and lethal stage of sepsis, and clinicians are left with very few options to treat the sickest of patients," said Dr. Paul Walker, President and CEO of Spectral. "Toraymyxin™ represents a new solution for sepsis treatment and has been used on more than 150,000 patients outside of North America over the course of more than a decade. Provided the FDA approves our Expanded Access program, this treatment could be available soon for use in select patients at participating clinical trial locations in the United States."

    The FDA has accepted Spectral's statistical analysis plan for the PMA submission of Toraymyxin™. Subsequent to analysis of the trial data, the Company expects to announce primary end point results around the end of September 2016 and will then submit the last module of the PMA. The first three modules have already been submitted to the FDA. Assuming positive clinical data and barring any unexpected delays, Spectral anticipates a decision from the FDA as early as the first quarter of 2017.

    The Company has submitted a 510K to the FDA for a proprietary stand-alone pump dedicated to the Toraymyxin™ therapy that would facilitate treatment delivery in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and increase options available to clinicians. The pump is also designed to provide an open platform for other hemoperfusion cartridges and to deliver continuous renal replacement therapy when indicated. A decision is expected in Q3 2016 and, if approved, the pump will be available for use in the Expanded Access program where needed.

    In anticipation of potential FDA approval of Toraymyxin™, Spectral and Toray Industries Inc. (Toray) are both taking the necessary operational steps to scale up manufacturing capabilities in order to be ready to begin sales in the first half of 2017. A new plant has been built by Toray in Japan for the manufacture of Toraymyxin™ and EAA™ manufacturing capacity has been expanded in Toronto. The Company is also currently engaged in confidential discussions with potential interested partners that have existing sales and marketing infrastructures and it will be evaluating all potential options going forward.
    "The progress we have demonstrated so far represents the culmination of six years of diligent work on clinical, regulatory and commercialization programs to bring the first approved product for endotoxemic septic shock to market and the finish line is in sight," added Dr. Paul Walker. "The imminent completion of patient enrollment in the EUPHRATES trial is an important step that brings Spectral significantly closer to addressing an enormous unmet medical need."
