Nexeon Begins Clinical Study with Newly Developed Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulator

Nexeon’s Director of Clinical Research Dr. Navid Khodaparast commented on the study’s preliminary results as follows, “Our aVNS system supported our original hypothesis by demonstrating a significant stimulation-induced effect on heart rate variability, which may prove to be effective in treating atrial fibrillation. It is our belief that a more holistic approach to the application of neurostimulation will usher in a new era of neuro-technological advances.  While our near-term target is to discover an improved therapy for patients with atrial fibrillation, we recognize the greater implication of monitoring, and potentially modulating, signals from the heart in a population of patients suffering from chronic diseases who are managing multiple comorbidities.” 

Next steps related to this clinical program will be the completion of a study on twenty patients suffering from paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The protocol includes an assessment of therapeutic safety and feasibility while participants receive chronic aVNS.

VNS has been used for years to treat epilepsy. Researchers worldwide are investigating whether delivering pulses of electricity to the nerve can help treat tinnitus, stroke, headache, asthma, obesity, depression, Crohn’s disease, and more.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
