The Regional Ethical Review Board (EPN) in Stockholm decided to approve the request to start clinical test for Dosell as a medical product.
The approval from EPN implies that Dosell, a patented digital drug dispenser for modern home-based health-care, can now be fully tested on patients. The tests will, as previously announced, be performed in collaboration with Apoteket.
MediRätt CEO Carl Johan Merner comments on EPN's approval:
– The Ethical Review Board approves any clinical tests on humans in Sweden. The decision by EPN is an important milestone for MediRätt as a company. It is a reassurement of that Dosell meets the highest standards as a medical device. I am very pleased that we are now ready to take the next step in our product development work in accordance with our timeplane and advance into further product refinement and, eventually, market launch.
Mangold Fondkommission AB, tel: +46 8 5030 1550, is the Company's Certified Adviser.
