Regulatory approval for marketing in the EU and Israel

The C-Scan system has received CE mark and approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health, the Medical Device Division (AMAR) for marketing in Israel.

U.S. Pilot Study

Check-Cap has completed a pilot study in the U.S. to evaluate the safety, usability and subject compliance of the C-Scan system. The study was conducted at two sites, the New York University Grossman School of Medicine and Mayo Clinic.

  • Positive results were reported from 28 evaluable study subjects (out of 40 who completed the study).
  • The primary endpoint was achieved, and no device or procedure related serious adverse events were reported.
  • All patients who underwent the study complied with the procedure and completed a questionnaire after the test, reporting higher satisfaction with the C-Scan System compared to colonoscopy.
  • The study also showed an agreement between C-Scan and colonoscopy in detection of polyps for evaluable patients, consistent with data from the post-CE approval study *.

*Due to sample size, the study was not designed to be powered for statistical significance 

U.S. Pivotal Study

  • A U.S. pivotal study is planned for 2022.
