Pulse Biosciences Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance for the Treatment of Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Additional 510(k) clearance recently received for use of larger spot size treatment tips with the CellFX System

HAYWARD, Calif., September 26, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pulse Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLSE), a novel bioelectric medicine company developing the CellFX® System powered by Nano-Pulse Stimulation™ (NPS™) technology, today announced receipt of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its CellFX System, expanding the indication for use to include the treatment of sebaceous hyperplasia in patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I-III. This specific indication clearance enhances the CellFX System’s general indication FDA clearance and enables the Company to support clinics in marketing and promoting CellFX treatments specifically for patients with sebaceous hyperplasia. The clearance was based on clinical data from the Company’s IDE approved study for the treatment of sebaceous hyperplasia.

The Company also recently received FDA 510(k) clearance of two additional treatment tips with larger spot sizes, specifically 7.5mm and 10mm tip sizes, for treating larger benign lesions. These treatment tips broaden the portfolio of previously available 1.5mm, 2.5mm and 5.0mm treatment tip sizes.

"We are pleased with the continued advancement of the CellFX System and its capabilities to enhance its value proposition for patients, clinicians and any potential commercial partner. These clearances provide further validation of the system’s strong safety and effectiveness profile," said Kevin Danahy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pulse Biosciences. "We would like to thank all of the investigators, the staff at their clinics and the patients who participated in these trials, as well as the FDA for their ongoing collaboration as we endeavor to offer the benefits of NPS technology to more patients."
