Traded in other countries:BY8N.Germany
EnteroMedics Inc was incorporated in Minnesota on December 19, 2002. The Company is a development stage medical device company with approvals to commercially launch its product in Australia, the European Economic Area and other countries that recognize the European CE Mark. The Company is focused on the design and development of devices that use neuroblocking technology to treat obesity, metabolic diseases and other gastrointestinal disorders. Its proprietary neuroblocking technology, which is referred to as VBLOC therapy, is designed to intermittently block the vagus nerve using high frequency, low energy, electrical impulses. The Company has limited operating history and currently only has regulatory approval to sell its product in Australia, the European Economic Area and other countries that recognize the European CE Mark. Its initial product is the Maestro System, which uses VBLOC therapy to affect metabolic regulatory control, limits the expansion of the stomach, help control hunger sensations between meals, reduce the frequency and intensity of stomach contractions and produce a feeling of early and prolonged fullness. The Company competes in the market for obesity treatment with surgical obesity procedures and various devices used to implement neurostimulation and gastric stimulation systems. Its competitors include: Abbott Labs, Roche, GlaxoSmithKline and Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The Company's trademarks include: VBLOC, ENTEROMEDICS, MAESTRO, MAESTRO SYSTEM ORCHESTRATING OBESITY SOLUTIONS, VBLOC POWER TO CHOOSE and VBLOC POWER TO CHOOSE AND DESIGN are the subject of either a trademark registration or application for registration in Australia, Brazil, China, the European Community, India, Kuwait, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. The Company uses third parties to manufacture its Maestro System to minimize its capital investment, help control costs and take advantage of the expertise these third parties have in the large-scale production of medical devices. Its Maestro System is regulated by the FDA as a medical device under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act or FFDCA and the regulations promulgated under the FFDCA. Pursuant to the FFDCA, the FDA regulates the research, design, testing, manufacture, safety, labeling, storage, record keeping, advertising, sales and distribution, post-market adverse event reporting, production and advertising and promotion of medical devices in the United States.
