Relievant Medsystems Achieves Completion of Interim Safety Data Analysis of Intracept in SMART Pivotal Study and Expands Senior Leadership Team
Date:4/10/2013

approximately 12 million new patients seek treatment for back pain. Unfortunately, nearly two million of these patients fail to respond to conservative therapies and then face limited additional options, including escalating use of narcotic pain medications, invasive surgical procedures (including fusions) or continued suffering. Relievant's Intracept therapy may be a viable treatment alternative for patients who suffer from chronic low back pain but no longer respond to conservative therapies.

About the SMART Clinical Trial

Relievant Medsystems, Inc., is sponsoring the Surgical Multi-center Assessment of RF Ablation for the Treatment of Vertebrogenic Back Pain (SMART) Trial. The SMART Trial is a Level 1, prospective, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical study evaluating the reduction of pain in patients with chronic axial low back pain. The landmark SMART Trial is enrolling 200 patients in leading medical centers to determine the safety and effectiveness of the Intracept procedure.  

Relievant is working in close partnership with its clinical advisors and the FDA to provide a therapy that addresses the needs of patients, spine surgeons and interventionalists, and payors.

This nerve, thought to be a significant contributor in the transduction of pain associated with chronic low back pain, and its attendant disability, can no longer generate pain signals following ablation. Relievant's primary investors include Canaan Partners, Emergent Ventures, Morgenthaler Ventur
