Guided Therapeutics Ships LuViva Devices and Disposables for Chinese FDA Pivotal Clinical Trial

By The Associated Press

PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 14, 2020--

Guided Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: GTHP), the maker of a rapid and painless testing platform based on its patented biophotonic technology, announced that it had shipped four LuViva Advanced Cervical Scan systems and associated disposables to its Chinese co-manufacturing partner and distributor for China, Shandong Yaohua Medical Instrument Corporation. Shandong will use the devices and disposables to help gain approval from the Chinese FDA by using them for regulatory evaluations and clinical studies. Guided Therapeutics will recognize $76,715 in revenue from the sales order.

“The sale of these systems is another important step in addressing the world’s second largest medical device market,” said Gene Cartwright, CEO of Guided Therapeutics. “We look forward to working with Shandong in their efforts to gain approval to sell LuViva in China.”

According to the World Health Organization, cervical cancer is ranked as one of the most frequent cancers in women in the world and in China it is the second most common cancer among women. China has a population of approximately 560 million women above 15 years of age, who are at risk of developing cervical cancer. Current estimates indicate approximately 100,000 new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed each year and 30,000 deaths occur annually due to cervical cancer in China.

Guided Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: GTHP) is the maker of a rapid and painless testing platform based on its patented biophotonic technology that utilizes light for the early detection of disease at the cellular level. The Company’s first product is the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan, a non-invasive device used to detect cervical disease instantly and at the point of care. In a multi-center clinical trial with women at risk for cervical disease, the technology was able to detect cervical cancer up to two years earlier than conventional modalities, according to published reports.
