BioElectronics Corporation's President 

8:00 AM ET 6/13/18 | GlobeNewswire

 
 


PHOENIX, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uptick Newswire welcomed Andy Whelan, President of BioElectronics Corporation (OTC Pink:BIEL) ("the Company") back onto the "Stock Day" podcast. Andy spoke with Everett about their progress in the US market, UK market, the new product, the US FDA, and new distributors and potential partnership opportunities. 

BioElectronics Corporation is a leader in non-invasive electroceuticals and the maker of an industry leading family of disposable, drug-free, pain therapy devices: ActiPatch(R) Therapy, over-the-counter treatment for back pain and other musculoskeletal complaints; RecoveryRx(R) Devices for chronic and post-operative wound care; Allay(R) Menstrual Pain Therapy. For more information, please visit  
http://www.bielcorp.com/

The Company is currently pursuing multiple US partnership opportunities that are partially contingent on additional FDA clearance for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain, back pain, knee pain, muscle, hip, carpal tunnel, etc. Whelan said,"Patience is key throughout this process. It's going as well as it can." Additionally, the Company anticipates solidifying deals with two new major distributors in the Asian and Eastern European markets. 

The Company's product development and regulatory clearances are going well. Now, with pre-submission clearance, the 510(k) relief of musculoskeletal pain market clearance application will be filed by the end of June. 

The US FDA has recently implemented an Innovation Program seeking "Breakthrough Devices" to Prevent and Treat Opioid Use Disorder. Opioids are routinely used for post-operative pain. Our United Kingdom ActiPatch User Registry accounts that 71% of opioid customers report a moderate (50%) to complete (100%) elimination in opioid medication use. The Company plans to submit its post-operative pain relief market clearance application into this program. The FDA's assistance, participation, and approval will provide credence and accelerate product market acceptance. 

The Company has begun shipments of its new single box kinesiology tape product to be used for back, knee, hip, and muscles and joints in lieu of the back wrap, knee wrap and muscle and joint adhesives. The kinesiology tape is easier to use, reduces product costs, and retail shelf space requirements. 

The Company is transitioning its United Kingdom over-the-counter sales and marketing from the front of the store to behind the counter to expand product availability from a few stores to all 14,000 pharmacies. Most pharmacies obtain daily product deliveries and most people in the UK qualify for free prescriptions. 

Whelan is confident in the direction the Company is moving, and cites the unique nature of their products as a factor that helps the Company stand out in the global medical electronics industry. Whelan then said, "This is one busy little Company." 

"Stock Day" host Everett Jolly stands by his assessment from his April interview with the company that the stock is very undervalued. BioElectronics Corporation trades on the OTC Pink market under the ticker symbol BIEL. Shares are currently selling at 0.0037, up over 100% since April.

About BioElectronics Corporation 

BioElectronics develops and manufactures unique nonprescription affordable neuromodulation medical devices. The Company's technology platform is for the treatment of central sensitization, which is now widely accepted as the physiological explanation for many neurological disorders, and specifically chronic pain. Central sensitization is difficult, if not impossible, to address through pharmacotherapy without having a detrimental impact on normal physiologic function. Moreover, pharmacological and masking therapies (creams, heat patches, TENS etc.) have limited effectiveness for chronic pain due to their transient nature. BioElectronics' electromagnetic stimulation therapy has the distinct advantage of being safe, affordable, long lasting, and effective pain relief.

BioElectronics Receives FDA Pre-Submission Approval for its Relief of Musculoskeletal Pain Market Clearance Application 


FREDERICK, MD , May 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioElectronics Corporation (BIEL) , www.bielcorp.com is pleased to report on the outcome of its Pre-Submission meeting on May 9th, 2018 with the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA). The FDA’s Pre-Submission Program is designed to organize and give guidance and feedback on clinical data and what regulatory pathway should be followed to get market clearance. The focus of the May 9 pre-submission meeting was in discussing the FDA’s feedback on the clinical outcomes and statistical techniques used in reporting the back-pain study. 

Upon reviewing pre-submission information on the ActiPatch® back-pain study (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03240146), the FDA provided positive feedback on the clinical results, and guidance on a 510(k) submission to obtain expanded market clearance for over-the-counter (OTC) treatment of musculoskeletal pain. This would make ActiPatch available as a drug-free, safe, pain relief option for the 126 million Americans (one in two adults) who are suffering with some form of musculoskeletal pain. While ActiPatch is already FDA cleared for treatment of pain from knee osteoarthritis (25 million) and plantar fasciitis (1 million annually), expanded market clearance would allow additional products for the back (42 million), neck (19 million), hip (9 million), shoulder (11 million), carpal tunnel (12 million) and many other musculoskeletal complaints. 

The company was represented by their clinical R&D team comprising: Sree Koneru, Ph.D., VP Product Development, Ian Rawe, Director Clinical Research of BioElectronics (BIEL), Kenneth McLeod, Ph.D. Director of Clinical Science and Engineering Research, State University of New York at Binghamton and Richard Staelin, Ph.D. Professor Duke University. Dr. Koneru, who led the discussion, expressed confidence in the FDA’s constructive feedback. “We are pleased that the FDA viewed our data and statistical methods favorably. They have provided guidance on how to combine the back-pain study results, along with our previously cleared 510(k), into a single 510(k) submission for obtaining expedited expanded market clearance.”, he said. 

An additional pre-submission meeting is scheduled with the FDA on May 29th, 2018 to seek expanded indications in a separate application for OTC treatment of pain and edema following surgical procedures for its RecoveryRx® medical device.

BioElectronics VP of Sales Discusses Pre & Post-operative Pain Relief Surgical Program in "Stock Day" Interview 

PHOENIX, April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uptick Newswire was thrilled to have Keith Nalepka, VP of Marketing & Sales at BioElectronics (OTC Pink:BIEL) ("the Company"), return to the "Stock Day" podcast. The company has been working hard lately to expand the United Kingdom market with B. Braun in the surgical market and the product opportunity from the recent National Health Service payment approval for its ActiPatch® medical device. 


BioElectronics is with B. Braun Medical, Ltd.UK to initiate the "Total Pathways Program" program into B. Braun's 26 geographic markets. The program is for pre-habilitation (treatment that happens prior to surgery) and post-operative recovery. This new program will benefit the majority of the 160,000 UK annual knee, hip, or joint replacements patients. According to Keith, BioElectronics is not just trying establishing a brand, but "to establish the process to a standardize care for pre and post-operative pain." 

The company is immensely proud of their team for getting their concept through to the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. In addition to successes here, the company is hoping to utilize their overseas success by applying data to their US-based efforts. 

There are some great potential partnerships currently being discussed at BioElectronics, with the closing of a significant deal just on the horizon. 

BioElectronics Corp is approaching their upcoming FDA meetings with confidence. "We have the data to make a very strong case for both broader musculoskeletal and post-operative pain relief indications," said Nalepka. "It's an exciting time for the company, and a really cool little product." 

For more details on the Total Pathways Program, news about a partnerships, and information about the company's upcoming meetings with the FDA, follow the link below to the full interview.

BioElectronics Up-Date

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

This letter is to report on our recent progress in marketing and product development. We have established the following:

  • Domestic and international market presence with products that have proven marketability and customer acceptance.
    Unique, patented technology platform of wearable, safe, and cost effective pulsed shortwave neuromodulation devices for neurological disorders, which include:
    • Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
      Menstrual Pain
      Heel and Foot Pain
      Migraine Headaches
      Postoperative Recovery and Pain
      Interstitial Cystitis (Overactive Bladder and Pelvic Pain)

We are continuing to solicit new international and domestic sales and marketing partners for distribution and licensing, while strengthening our relationship with existing partners. To aid in this effort we have engaged an accomplished sales and marketing pharmaceutical consultant to assist in introduction and negotiations of sales and marketing partnerships.

US Market Clearance

ActiPatch®, Musculoskeletal Pain Therapy

We are in the process of expanding the US market clearance from relief of osteoarthritis of the knee pain and plantar fasciitis. Our goal is to obtain general clearance for musculoskeletal pain. To achieve this, we have submitted a chronic back pain clinical study to the US FDA as a formal Pre-Sub. The initial meeting with the FDA is tentatively scheduled for May 9th. Prior guidance from the FDA indicated that a third clinical study was required before expanding the current market indications to cover all musculoskeletal pain. We are hopeful that the process will be completed rapidly, however we will not have a good estimate of this market clearance date until the completion of the May 9th meeting.

Postoperative Recovery and Pain

We have submitted a formal Pre-Sub to the US FDA for guidance in obtaining market clearance for the palliative treatment of postoperative pain and edema. The application is supported by postoperative clinical studies on breast augmentation and caesarean section.

Marketing Expansion

We believe that expanded market clearance from the FDA will enhance the market value and attractiveness of the ActiPatch product line.

Our economic and clinical studies for the National Health Services allowed us to gain a drug tariff listing for reimbursement in England and Wales allowing the following:

  • Prescription coverage for the majority of the 56 million populations of England and Wales.
    A drug tariff listing for reimbursement is expected to accelerate reimbursement clearance request in other nations.
    Has the potential to open the US market to the 90 million people with prescription payment coverage in Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO's), Accountable Care Organization, and other third party payers to provide and pay the cost of ActiPatch therapy.

The ActiPatch registry studies report that people buy the device because it is effective, drug-free, has no harmful side effects and overall improves quality of life. We are continually working to solve existing minor issues with the use of ActiPatch. To improve the product, we are introducing custom-design kinesiology tape strips to attach the device to the body. Aside from improving user comfort, this allows us to promote a single multi-purpose box with the added benefit of reducing retail shelf space. We believe this will then allow us to sell the 7-day trial devices from pharmacy shelves.

B. Braun UK

This is an important development for BioElectronics. B Braun has been using RecoveryRx to improve recovery following joint replacement for many years, although in limited surgeries. However, new advances in day surgery for joint replacement have expanded our opportunity. B. Braun has recently completed a pilot program in the UK evaluating day for joint replacement. The United Kingdom's Group day surgery program for knee and hip replacement patients and is now being implemented on a national basis. Currently there are 80,000 procedures per year involving B Braun. The "fast-track" same day hip and knee replacements are being supported by hospital physiotherapy teams visiting the patient at home and communicating using a special wireless technology tablet. Upon hospital discharge, each patient will be given an ActiPatch medical device and a prescription for 6 additional devices to help accelerate recovery and mitigate the postoperative pain. A similar program is in development for spinal surgeries.

On an international level, B. Braun's 54,000 employees are in 60 countries and are separated into additional divisions for hospital care, surgical products, outpatient care, and home care services. It is anticipated that B. Braun's German Group will roll out the same day hip and knee replacement program in the next few months.

 

Smart Insole – Heel Pain Relief

We have redesigned the Smart™ Insole plantar fasciitis insole to enhance user comfort. We are awaiting a written License and Supply Agreement for the product.

Clinical Research to Expand Market Clearance and Acceptance

Allay®, Menstrual Pain Therapy

28% of women are in the menstrual phase of life and 60% have moderate to severe menstrual pain, or 17% of women.

Previously our medical devices were classified as high risk class III by the US FDA. While our existing pilot clinical study for menstrual pain reported exceptional results for menstrual pain, to publish a clinical study and obtain US market clearance, we are collaborating with the University Hospital at Birmingham, UK. The researchers here are world renowned thought leaders in women's health and are conducting a double-blind randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of ActiPatch in reducing menstrual pain (clinicaltrials.gov listing NCT03394547).

You can view the existing clinical evidence and our commercials at https://www.myallay.com/

Prevention of Episodic Migraines Headaches

Migraines affect 36 million men, women and children in the United States alone. The facts are:

  • In addition to attack-related disability, migraine interferes with a sufferer's ability to function in everyday life, whether that is going to school or work, caring for family or enjoying social activities.
    About 14m people experience chronic daily headache – attacks occur at least 15 days per month.
    For more than 90% of all sufferers, migraine interferes with their education, career and social activities.
    Depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances are common for those with chronic migraine.
    People with migraine use about twice the medical resources –including prescription medications and office and emergency room visits– as non-sufferers.

Chronic pain is now widely understood to be due to central sensitization, which leads to exaggerated pain perception. Migraine is no exception; since it is well known that sensitization of the trigeminovascular pain pathway can occur during a migraine attack. There is pilot data that ActiPatch can help mitigate this sensitization, so a study has been completed to determine the efficacy of ActiPatch in preventing chronic, episodic migraines. The data from the study will be analysed in the next few weeks. We believe this data will allow us to work towards developing a product as a migraine therapy and allowing us to obtain market clearance.

Postoperative Recovery and Pain

Working with our distributor in Lebanon we are conducting a double blind placebo randomized controlled trial on total knee replacement (clinicaltrial.gov NCT03395444). Through our long standing association with B. Braun UK, RecoveryRx has been determined to be a valuable aid in joint replacement surgery. This clinical study will allow us to gain worldwide recognition and allow for expanded marketing and acceptance of the RecoveryRx as a standard of post-operative care following joint replacement.

Interstitial Cystitis (Overactive Bladder and Pelvic Pain)

This study is a University of Texas, McGovern Medical School sponsored double blind randomized controlled trial. The goal is to determine how well the ActiPatch therapy works in treating patients with interstitial cystitis, bladder pain syndrome and overactive bladder. Interstitial cystitis and bladder pain syndrome are chronic bladder health conditions that greatly affect quality of life. These conditions create intermittent feelings of pain and pressure in the bladder area. The study is expected to recruit 60 women who are urology patients of the University's hospital.

At least 35 million Americans have overactive bladder. Lower urinary tract symptoms, urgency, and pelvic pain are common complaints to urologists and primary care physicians.

Additional Bioelectronic Product Opportunities

As we develop the organizational structure we envision additional opportunities in chronic wounds, neuropathy, hypertensive therapy, etc. Most importantly future growth is not dependent on large capital outlays for research and development.

Immediate Sales Growth

We anticipate imminent solid sales growth from the following programs:

  • NHS reimbursement of ActiPatch in the United Kingdom
    B. Braun, UK same day surgery program
    US professional sales to physical therapist, nursing homes, managed care providers
    International geographic market expansion; and,
    Domestic and International License and Supply Agreements for ActiPatch and the Smart Insole products.

 

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Opinion Section:

Keep in mind partners are happening and licensed ones at that.

 

The back study will not go in as a new submission, it is included in the knee and ankle submission so this will happen quicker than most would believe. Well actually the back study will be added to the prior submission, I don't want to confuse you

 

Watch how huge the Co-Branding gets. How many names besides Pain Gear?

Within the next 120 days BIEL will have in place-

Full body clearance minus the Migraine, anticipated clearance at a later date based upon the fact that this is a preventative study and the patients must have signs of a migraine coming, this study is a little more complicated.

Licensed partners (Major)

Equity partners

At least 2 huge retail chains

 

Let’s add on a few more distributors. Why not? Lol

 

NHS-first week of April, keep in mind not the only week, this is lifetime!

There will be other EU States that will duplicate the NHS and this will be coupled with licenses being sold to partners. What price, how much in royalties will soon be determined.

 

The August financials will and should be the strength of evidence that a certain person has established a supply chain that will be second to none.

 

I should mention that sales makeup only one component of the revenue stream, this is where my opinion may differ from the good posters on the BIEL board.

 

Revenue is the total amount taken in by a business in a set period of time.

This can include royalties, license fees and equity from partners and sales.

 

BIEL cannot have millions in sales without including the other revenue streams mentioned above.

 

My revenue forecast including sales may be different than others.

 

Great rewards will follow in due time. Waiting on the FDA protocol. Which means pre-submission. Guidance, rules and timing will be part of the protocol.(Looks like May-June clearance.)

 

Migraine clinical results will still be the huge one for the FDA protocol.(August-September clearance on positive results.)

 

NHS is the first of many EU States getting on board. Pretty good health systems across the pond. Sweden next!

 

The back pain study will obtain US FDA clearance for relief of musculoskeletal pain. Migraine headaches are not musculoskeletal. Migraines and musculoskeletal pain are both neurological disorders. Two FDA clearances!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

SEC-much ado about nothing!

Partners-much ado about something!

BioElectronics ActiPatch Drug-Free Pain Therapy Receives United Kingdom National Health System Payment Coverage

January 04, 2018 07:00 ET Source: BioElectronics Corporation
 
 

FREDERICK, Md., Jan. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioElectronics Corporation (OTC PINK: BIEL), www.bielcorp.com makes wearable, drug-free chronic pain therapy medical devices. It is pleased to announce that the UK’s government-funded public health service, National Health System (NHS), has approved our application to cover and pay for ActiPatch® Musculoskeletal Pain Therapy. The NHS estimates that almost half of the 50 million UK adults may be living with chronic-pain¹, which is why there are more than 100,000 physician visits every day for musculoskeletal pain alone².

The ActiPatch is a drug-free, wearable medical device that regulates peripheral nerve activity to provide pain relief. The NHS based its decision considering strong clinical evidence and a health economics study, which found that ActiPatch significantly decreased pain and improved quality of life, while reducing overall healthcare costs by 42% (58.5% reduction in physician appointment costs, 35% reduction in prescription medication costs).

“This is a major win for pain sufferers in the UK, since they will now be able to obtain a prescription for ActiPatch, the cost of which will be covered by the government,” stated Ian Rawe, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Research at BioElectronics. “We commend this move by the NHS, as this will open up the doors for reimbursement in the US and other managed care markets. This will likely have a tremendous impact on our sales and marketability of the product in the UK and elsewhere,” said Keith Nalepka, VP of Sales & Marketing at BioElectronics.

With the addition of ActiPatch to list of approved treatments, chronic pain sufferers now have access to paid safe, drug-free chronic pain relief. The ActiPatch will be listed for payment coverage in April.

This improvement translated into reduced utilization of healthcare services, leading to a 36.8% reduction in health care costs to the NHS over a 3-month period, even after accounting for the cost of the ActiPatch device 

Conclusion 
Utilizing ActiPatch® as a chronic pain therapy treatment improves patient quality of 
life, while reducing the economic burden to the NHS.
 

Almost half of all UK adults may be living with chronic pain

"Almost half the adult population is living with chronic pain," the Daily Mail reports. A major new review suggests that around 28 million adults in the UK are affected by some type of chronic pain (pain that lasts for more than three months). Read More Link
