Regulatory News :

Mauna Kea Technologies (Paris:MKEA) (Euronext: MKEA, FR0010609263), inventor of Cellvizio®, the multidisciplinary optical biopsy platform, announces a strong presence at the annual CCDD 2014 conference on digestive endoscopy held in Jinan, China, from October 10 to 12.

Mauna Kea Technologies was represented at the conference by its partner Fujifilm, with part of its stand given over entirely to endomicroscopy with Cellvizio.

Cellvizio garnered a great deal of attention during the conference, including the presentation of the results of eight studies, a live Cellvizio procedure, a private symposium on how to use Cellvizio led by Pr. Michael Wallace from the Mayo Clinic and Pr. Yan Qing Li of the Qilu hospital attended by a large number of physicians, who received a copy of the GI Confocal Endomicroscopy book, written entirely in Chinese by doctors from the Qilu hospital.

Interest in endomicroscopy with Cellvizio is gaining momentum in China and all the requisite elements for its development there are now in place. We have a country manager and clinical head in place on the ground and a powerful distribution partner. Opinion leaders have rallied behind it, and we have set up a medical training unit in conjunction with the Qilu hospital. Nine clinical trials are currently underway in the targeted conditions, and the treatments are reimbursed locally in certain regions”, stated Sacha Loiseau, Founder and CEO of Mauna Kea Technologies. “We are confident about the development of the Chinese market, which is expected to accelerate once we gain regulatory approval for Cellvizio 100 and the AQ-Flex 19 probe in the characterization of pancreatic cysts”.

Next press release: 2014 Q3 Sales on October 15th, 2014 after the market closes
