In addition, the FDA has granted Relievant an expansion of the number of SMART Clinical Trial enrolling centers to up to 20 clinical sites to complete its 200-patient randomized controlled trial.

"This outcome marks a significant milestone for the company as expansion of our clinical trial allows Relievant to increase the number of clinicians contributing to this landmark study as well as to have the opportunity to accelerate patient enrollment in the SMART trial with the Intracept Ablation Therapy for chronic low back pain," said Alex DiNello , CEO and President of Relievant.
