ASHKELON, Israel, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrity Applications, Inc. (OTCQB: IGAP), maker of GlucoTrack®, a non-invasive device for measuring glucose levels of people with Type 2 diabetes or at risk of developing diabetes, announced today that on October 19, 2015, it met with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to discuss its clinical trial protocol for GlucoTrack® Model DF-F.
The meeting followed submission in August 2015 of pre-submission documents to the FDA, including the U.S. clinical trial protocol.
Subject to approval of the clinical trial protocol by the FDA, the Company expects to begin clinical trials in the United States in early 2016.
"We continue to be diligent with our FDA approval process efforts," said Avner Gal, Integrity Applications CEO and President. "We plan to work closely with the FDA, our clinical investigators, and our regulatory team to implement the FDA's feedback and execute the study protocol."
GlucoTrack® is a non-invasive device for measuring glucose levels of people with Type 2 diabetes or at risk of developing diabetes.
The GlucoTrack® Model DF-F is expected to begin clinical trials for United States FDA approval in early 2016, subject to approval of Integrity Applications' clinical trial protocol by the FDA. The device is not available for sale in the United States.
GlucoTrack® Model DF-F obtained a CE Mark approval in Europe (June 2013) and final CE Mark approval in March 2014 and recently received approval to market the device also to pre-diabetics.
GlucoTrack® Model DF-F is currently under assessment with the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) as well as food and drug governing bodies in Japan, South Korea Canada and Australia.
GlucoTrack® does not require pricking of the fingers to draw blood for daily glucose monitoring. GlucoTrack® features a small sensor that clips to the earlobe and measures the wearer's glucose level by taking measurements using three technologies. The measured signals are analyzed using a proprietary algorithm and displayed on a small handheld device, the size of a mobile phone. The derived glucose measurement is also announced verbally, facilitating use by elderly and vision-impaired diabetes patients.
