Utrecht (The Netherlands) – Nyxoah S.A., a medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of a best-in-class hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS) therapy for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), announced today that it successfully raised an additional €15 million ($17.1 million USD) in its most recent round of equity financing. The financing was led by Cochlear Limited (www.cochlear.com), an Australian medical device company (ASX: COH) and global leader in implantable hearing solutions.
Nyxoah recently completed the BLAST-OSA (BiLAteral Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation for Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea) clinical study, an essential milestone for its CE marking dossier already submitted to the European regulatory body. Patients from the BLAST OSA study show a major improvement in sleep apnea symptoms and quality of life. The additional financing will be used to initiate post-CE Mark European market development activities and to work toward Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Nyxoah has developed the world’s first and only battery-free, leadless and minimally invasive neurostimulator, capable of delivering bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulation for moderate to severe OSA patients who have failed conventional Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) therapy.
