Kalamazoo, Michigan, January 18, 2018. Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB:MZEI) or Medizone, manufacturer of the AsepticSure® system, today announced that as a result of its meeting with representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) on January 18, 2018, it has reached decisions regarding the regulatory pathway for approval of the system and the additional information that must be generated to support a marketing application.
Medizone’s President and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Shannon commented, “Our discussions with the FDA regarding the regulatory pathway for approval of AsepticSure® were positive, productive, detailed and specific. During the discussions, the FDA stated its position that there is no predicate device that is substantially equivalent to AsepticSure® because of its unique method of action. As a result, we will apply for De Novo classification of the system. Furthermore, we now have a clear understanding of the additional testing that we will need to conduct and the additional data that we will need to submit to support our De Novo application. We anticipate being able to perform the additional testing and to provide the additional data within a few months, which would permit us to submit an application for De Novo classification by the end of the third quarter. If our application for De Novo classification is granted, we believe we will enjoy a significant competitive advantage over other disinfection technologies.”
