In a statement issued on Saturday 26thSeptember at 12:00 noon (EEST) Nexstim
Plc announced that it had received a recommendation from the Data Safety
Monitoring Board (DSMB), an independent committee of experts monitoring the
trial, to continue the Phase III stroke therapy NICHE trial, without any
modifications towards the goal of achieving its primary endpoint. The first
interim analysis on the NICHE (Navigated Inhibitory rTMS to Contralesional
Hemisphere) trial using Nexstim's Navigated Brain Therapy (NBT®) was
performed after 81 patients reached their primary safety outcome assessment,
on track, at six months post-treatment. As previously announced, the second
interim analysis is expected to occur in Q1 2016 and the study is scheduled
to complete in Q3 2016 when full data will be disclosed.

Nexstim commenced the pivotal, randomised, sham-controlled, double-blinded
multi-centre Phase III study in H1 2014 to demonstrate the effects of its
NBT® system on upper limb motor rehabilitation post-stroke. The two year
study is being conducted on up to 198 patients at 12 prominent rehabilitation
sites in the USA. The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate a
difference between the active NBT® and sham groups of patients to achieve a
clinically important functional improvement from baseline to six months post
treatment. The safety data was assessed on all patients 160 recruited
to-date.

Commenting on the DSMB's positive recommendation, Janne Huhtala, Chief
Executive Officer of Nexstim, said:
"The DSMB recommendation confirms the good safety profile of our product and
de-risks the programme heading into the pivotal efficacy outcome data. With
positive outcome data, Nexstim will be strongly placed to take a significant
market position with NBT
®
for stroke therapy. We continue the unmodified trial, as planned, with
excitement and with the aim of hitting the primary endpoint and bringing this
important product to patients and care givers in rehabilitation centres as
quickly as possible."
