EndoBarrier expansion

EndoBarrier Therapy in the European Union

New centres in Spain, Switzerland and Germany

Five new centres in Europe have begun offering EndoBarrier Therapy, a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical therapy for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and/or obesity.

“We are continuing to invest in supporting the expansion of EndoBarrier Therapy in the European Union, an important region of the world where reimbursement is critical to long-term sales growth,” said Mark C Twyman, chief commercial officer of GI Dynamics. “As we continue to build the case for expanded reimbursement in Germany and local reimbursement in other countries. In addition to expanding our commercial footprint in Europe, we continue to make important progress in self-pay markets and look forward to sharing updates on these efforts in the near future.” 

The new centres offering treatment with EndoBarrier Therapy are:

  • Hospital Universitari De Bellvitge, Barcelona, Spain
  • Universitätsspital Zürich, Zurich, Switzerland
  • Klinikum der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Campus Großhadern, Munich, Germany
  • Klinikum Bogenhausen - Klinikum München, Munich, Germany
  • St Martinus-Krankenhaus Düsseldorf in collaboration with the Deutsches Diabetes-Zentrum Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf, Germany

EndoBarrier is approved and is commercially available in multiple countries outside the US. GI Dynamics is conducting a pivotal clinical trial of EndoBarrier in the US for the treatment of patients who have uncontrolled type 2 diabetes and are obese.
