E-QURE's BST Device for Chronic Wound Care Receives Marketing Approval in Israel

NEW YORK, February 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Following receiving CE Marking in Europe, Israel's AMAR is a major milestone for the country where the device was developed 
  • $250 M wound care market in Israel 
  • E-QURE files BST for inclusion in the National Health Basket, Israel's national healthcare reimbursement system  

E-QURE Corp. (OTCQB: EQUR), a leader in medical devices for the treatment of advanced wound care, announced today it has received marketing approval for the Company's patented Bio-electrical Signal Therapy Device ("BST Device") in Israel from the Israeli Ministry of Health. The Accessories and Medical Devices Registration (AMAR) is granted in order to secure safety and efficacy for medical devices used in Israel. BST is a breakthrough novel electrotherapy for the non-invasive treatment of hard-to-heal chronic wounds.

E-QURE intends to immediately begin marketing efforts in Israel by activating its signed distribution agreement with Chemipal Ltd, which was concluded last year and was pending AMAR approval. The Israeli advanced wound care market size is estimated at $250 million, with no electrical device on the market prior to the BST's approval.

E-QURE intends to start commercial activity in the private healthcare market, and has filed for including BST treatment in Israel's approved National Health Basket, the national healthcare reimbursement system.

"Israel is going to be our commercial pilot sales market. Taking advantage of this small but lucrative wound care market, we intend to build revenues and implement sales techniques that will help us in other markets around the world," stated Ron Weissberg, Chairman of E-QURE Corp.

About E-QURE  

E-QURE Corp (OTCQB: EQUR) is a leader in medical devices for the treatment of advanced wound care. E-QURE's breakthrough patented Bioelectrical Signal Therapy (BST) Device is the only method in the world to non-invasively close and heal chronic wounds and ulcers. Current methods of chronic wound treatment at best treat or reduce the wound, but none consistently heal or cure it. The BST Device not only cures wounds, it does so faster, at lower cost, and with more convenience to the patient and the healthcare system. The BST Device has received regulatory approval in Europe and Israel, and is expected to launch in Q1 - Q3 2017 in Israel and Argentina, where approval is pending. E-QURE plans to begin its pivotal U.S. FDA trial in the first quarter of 2017. The Company's pipeline includes additional proprietary wound care products in development.
