ResApp Health Limited (ASX: RAP), the developer of smartphone medical applications for the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease, today provided an update on its US clinical study program. ResApp is currently in advanced negotiations with two major US hospitals as sites for ResApp’s paediatric clinical study. Both hospitals rank among the top 10 nationally in the US and see in excess of 60,000 patients annually at their emergency departments. These sites will allow fast enrolment of large numbers of patients and provide the highest quality clinical results for submission to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Discussions with two additional clinical study sites in the US are also underway.
The Company now expects these negotiations to conclude in July, with clinical studies to begin shortly thereafter. Filing of the direct de novo premarket submission to the US FDA will follow completion of these studies and is now expected to occur in Q3 this calendar year. The de novo process has a 120-day review cycle.
