BASKING RIDGE, N.J., May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- electroCore, Inc. (Nasdaq: ECOR), a commercial-stage bioelectronic medicine company, today announced that two oral presentations featuring non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) will be presented at the 71st Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) to be held on May 4-10, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Abraham Nagy will present findings highlighting real-world evidence of cluster headache patients using nVNS. Dr. Maike Moller will present data demonstrating the effect of nVNS on specific brain regions providing further mechanistic support for the efficacy of nVNS in multiple headache conditions.
“The pairing of real-world evidence-based findings and mechanistic rationale further support the use of gammaCoreTM, specifically as an early-line treatment. While the use of traditional pharmacologic options is valuable, the mounting evidence highlights the potential for gammaCore to provide patients with an effective, safe and convenient non-drug option,” said Francis Amato, chief executive officer of electroCore.
