FDA Pre-Submission Filed for Cardio inCode-SCORE_Commencement of regulatory pathway for US market approval

OXFORD, England, January 11, 2022 (Newswire.com) – GENinCode Plc (AIM: GENI), the predictive genetics company focused on the prevention of cardiovascular disease, announces the filing of its Pre-Submission for Cardio inCode-SCORE with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Cardio inCode-SCORE is an in-vitro diagnostic test which assesses an individual’s combined genetic and clinical risk to predict and prevent cardiovascular disease (“CVD”).

Following extensive exchange of information and constructive discussions with the FDA, GENinCode has been invited by the FDA to file its Pre-Submission for Cardio inCode-SCORE. This marks the commencement of the regulatory pathway for US market approval, which is anticipated later this year. The FDA views Pre-Submission as a structured process for managing and tracking interactions between manufacturers and the FDA about the application for approval or clearance, prior to final submission. It is an interactive process designed to give the opportunity to obtain FDA feedback on the application with the goal of making the end submission process more efficient.

 

Matthew Walls, CEO of GENinCode Plc, said: “Despite the delays driven by the pandemic, the filing of the Cardio inCode FDA Pre-Submission marks the start of the US regulatory approval pathway and ongoing preparation for the launch of Cardio inCode-SCORE later this year. Recognition of inherited genetic contribution to the onset of cardiovascular disease continues to grow. We are well placed to improve the CVD standard of care by identifying individuals at high genetic risk who can be advised on lifestyle choices and access to personalised treatment to improve future health outcomes.”

 

GENinCode specialises in polygenic risk assessment of CVD, the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. CVD is a broad disease classification which encompasses conditions such as coronary artery disease (causing angina, heart attack and heart failure), cerebrovascular disease (causing stroke, and some dementia), peripheral vascular disease (causing limb ischaemia, and some chronic kidney disease) and venous thromboembolism. CVD accounts for an estimated 17.9 million deaths globally each year and accounts for 1 in every 4 deaths in the United States. By 2030 the global cost of CVD is set to rise from approximately US$863 billion in 2010 to US$1,044 billion and is both a major health issue and global economic burden.
