Item 7.01. Regulation FD.
On October 26, 2021, Motus GI Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing results from an independent single-center study of the Pure-Vu System as an adjunct to colon cleansing in patients with inadequate bowel preparation (IBP), which were featured in a poster presentation at the 2021 American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) Annual Scientific Meeting. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K under Item 7.01, including the information contained in Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission, and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by a specific reference in such filing.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
On October 26, 2021, the Company announced the presentation of results from an independent single-center study of the Pure-Vu System as an adjunct to colon cleansing in patients with inadequate bowel preparation (IBP) in a poster presentation at the 2021 American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) Annual Scientific Meeting.
In the independent study, the Pure-Vu System was used in 40 patients (14 inpatient procedures (35%) and 26 outpatient procedures (65%)) with IBP to complete the colonoscopy. The indication for colonoscopy was either diagnostic or colorectal cancer (CRC) screening/surveillance. Pure-Vu was used as an adjunct to IBP to allow completion of procedure in 37 patients. In patients with IBP, the mean BBPS score improved from 3.1 (range: 0-6) to 8.5 (range 5-9) after intra-procedural cleansing. Three patients had active lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB), and the Pure-Vu System was used without bowel preparation to promptly detect the etiology and possibly treat. When used in emergency colonoscopy without bowel preparation, procedures could be completed in all three patients detecting and treating diverticular and post-polypectomy bleeding in one patient each and diagnosing severe right sided ischemic colitis in another. The study authors concluded the utility of the Pure-Vu System without prior bowel preparation in LGIB needs further study. Use of Pure-Vu System did not interfere with the performance of endoscopic interventions including biopsy, cold/hot snare polypectomy, or EMR. Besides minor mucosal trauma in two cases, no major complications were observed with the Pure-Vu System.
