HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pulse Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLSE), a medical technology company developing a proprietary therapeutic tissue treatment based on its Nano-Pulse Stimulation (NPS) platform today reports recent corporate developments and financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Recent Developments

  • Initiation of clinical study in patients with Seborrheic Keratosis. Patient enrollment and treatment is underway in the Company’s first clinical study investigating NPS for the treatment of Seborrheic Keratosis (SK), a benign skin lesion impacting over 80 million patients in the United States.
  • PulseTxTM System 510(k) under review. The PulseTx system is an NPS platform comprised of a tunable nanosecond pulse generator and accompanying tissue applicators. The FDA 510(k) submission made during the first quarter remains in the review process.

“We continue to make meaningful and expedient progress toward our goal of delivering NPS as a novel therapeutic option that could represent a significant improvement over current treatments in a variety of indications,” said Darrin Uecker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pulse Biosciences. “Following the initiation of our first indication study applying the NPS technology for the treatment of SK lesions, we remain confident in NPS’ potential to deliver a treatment benefit to patients and clinicians across a variety of dermatologic conditions.”

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments totaled $15.4 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $16.4 million at December 31, 2016, including net cash use during 2017 totaling $6.0 million, and $3.5 million for the second quarter of 2017.

About Pulse Biosciences

Pulse Biosciences is a medical technology company developing a therapeutic tissue treatment platform based on Nano-Pulse Stimulation, a proprietary cell signaling technology. Nano-Pulse Stimulation is a non-thermal, precise, focal drug-free tissue treatment technology that directly affects the cell membrane and intracellular structures to stimulate unique behaviors in cells. NPS can initiate a cell death process that allows for the treatment of tissue cells with minimal inflammatory response which improves healing outcomes and supports the replacement of treated tissue cells with healthy tissue cells. In cancerous lesions, NPS has been shown in preclinical models to induce immunogenic cell death (ICD) exposing the unique antigens of the treated cells to the immune system, resulting in the generation of cytotoxic T-cells and the mounting of an adaptive immune response targeted against those cells. Pulse Biosciences is investigating a variety of applications for its technology that exploits the technology’s unique biologic effect, including immuno-oncology, dermatology, and veterinary medicine.
