UroShield – Initial “Proof of Concept” Studies NASDAQ: NAOV Case Studies & RCT’s • Salem Academic Hospital HD1 - Double Blind, RCT, (22 patients) - Statistically significant indication of prevention of biofilm, - Less medications and less pain than the control (U.Ikinger) • Salem Academic Hospital HD2 - Double Blind, RCT, (40 patients) - 1/20 patients randomized to UroShield, without antibiotics, developed UTI vs 4/20 in the control group who were treated with prophylaxic antibiotic therapy (U.Ikinger) • Shaare Zedek Medical Center – Case Series (10 patients) - Reported effectiveness in pain reduction, spasms, burning & itching. Results demonstrated a reduction in pain, itching, burning and spasms • Shaare Zedek Medical Center – Open label, comparative, randomized (40 patients) - Statistically significant reduction in postoperative catheter related pain and bladder spasms. Notable trend towards reduction of bacteriuria. • Prof. P. Tenke, Hungary – Multiple Patient Evaluations (27 patients) - Demonstrated reduction in pain and significant decrease in bacteriuria rates. 139 patients evaluated in 5 different studies with no adverse events reported

 

 

NASDAQ: NAOV Current Randomized Trial • 55 subjects evaluated at five different nursing facilities 26 patients treated with placebo devices (“controlled”) 29 patients had active UroShield devices (“treatment”) • All patients had been treated for at least one incident of a catheter - acquired urinary tract infection (CAUTI) 90 - Day Follow - Up • All study subjects had an initial colony count of greater than 100,000 CFUs • 0% infections in the UroShield treatment group reported during the 30 day active treatment period • 27% symptomatic UTI reported in the controlled group during the 30 day active treatment period • 10.3% in UroShield treatment group developed symptomatic UTI at 90 days • 53.8% in controlled group developed a developed symptomatic UTI at 90 days • The UroShield treatment group demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in the rate of CAUTI Published in the December 2018 issue of Medical & Surgical Urology, a leading peer - reviewed journal “The Effect of Surface Acoustic Waves on Bacterial Load and Preventing Catheter - Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) in Long Term Indwelling Catheters,” UroShield – Successful Peer Reviewed Study Results

Biofilms and catheters • Biofilms can develop on the external or internal surface of the catheter. • Can contribute to catheter - associated UTIs and catheter blockages. • Often infections and blockage can reoccur. • Up to 50% patients undergoing long - term catheterisation will experience encrustations and subsequent blockage. • Blockages are most commonly due to the presence of Proteus mirabilis , a urease - producing bacterium which causes a rapid increase in urine pH, leading to crystal formation and encrustations.

Scheme of artificial bladder model assembly: 1, aspirator with artificial urine; 2, peristaltic pump; 3, glass artificial bladder; 4, heating jacket; 5, water bath; 6, drainage bag; 7, artificial urethra. (Kazmierska et al ., 2010). Images taken from Maierl et al., 2015. This is the most widely accepted setup for in - vitro testing Controlled laboratory modelling: UNIVERSITY OF Southampton

Conclusions of In Vitro Study • Previous testing concluded that coated and impregnated catheters were deemed innecfective • Bacteria attach to the catheter surface rapidly and after only 2 hours, are surrounded by material which is polysaccharide - based. • Complex crystalline biofilms can develop quickly. • Alternative control methods include the use of impregnated materials and active coatings – but these may lead to resistance or be ineffective. • The Nanovibronix TM UroShield TM device was tested on catheters under controlled laboratory conditions in flow models using an artificial urine medium. Produced the best results of any prior tests. • Have tracked the effect on E. coli , Proteus and Pseudomonas attachment and biofilm formation. • There is no impact of the immune system or human cells, ultrasound has been shown to stimulate the action of neutrophils.

 

 

UroShield Shows Great Promise in the Effort to Reduce CAUTI!!! Summary Conclusion
