NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PAVmed Inc. (Nasdaq: PAVM,PAVMW), a highly differentiated, multi-product medical device company, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016, and that the Company will host a business update conference call on February 22, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.
During this call, PAVmed’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lishan Aklog, M.D., will provide a business update including an overview of the Company’s near-term milestones and growth strategy. Timothy Murphy, M.D., a member of PAVmed’s medical advisory board, will be joining Dr. Aklog to discuss PAVmed’s PortIO™, a novel, implantable intraosseous vascular access device that is awaiting U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance. Dr. Murphy is a Professor and Director of the Vascular Disease Research Center at the Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School and the former President of the Society of Interventional Radiology.
“We concluded 2016 with a very important milestone, the December FDA 510(k) submission for PortIO, our first regulatory filing,” said Dr. Aklog. “PortIO was designed to eliminate many of the shortcomings of existing implantable vascular access devices and intraosseous infusion systems. We expect PortIO to provide physicians with a rapid and efficient system to establish an intraosseous route for delivery of medications, fluids and other substances directly into the bone marrow cavity. We hope to receive FDA clearance and begin commercializing this exciting product in 2017.”
“I am so proud of our team’s accomplishments in 2016. In addition to our first FDA submission, we completed our IPO in April and entered into our first licensing agreement in November – partnering with a group of leading academic medical centers to develop and commercialize a revolutionary device to treat pediatric ear infection. This expanded our pipeline to six products which we are advancing towards commercialization using our proven capital-efficient business model,” Dr. Aklog concluded.
For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, the Company incurred $606,971 and $1,719,587 of research and development costs, respectively, and $1,103,543 and $3,931,254 of formation and general and administrative expenses, respectively. As previously disclosed, in January 2017 the Company raised gross proceeds of approximately $1.5 million in a private placement of units consisting of Series A convertible preferred stock and Series A warrants.
