Please share with us the cost of the entire therapy.
The cost of EndoBarrier Therapy for patients varies between markets, taking into account the cost of having the procedure, the device itself and reimbursement from the healthcare system. Overall, EndoBarrier is less expensive than surgical treatments and has the potential for cost savings across the healthcare system.
Can EndoBarrier Therapy be used to prevent diabetes in those who are prone to have diabetes in near future?
EndoBarrier Therapy can have a significant effect on both blood sugar levels and weight loss. Clinical studies have also shown that EndoBarrier Therapy can help reduce or eliminate the use of diabetic medications. Clinical studies have not been conducted to show that EndoBarrier Therapy can prevent diabetes.
So far, EndoBarrier has been approved for sale in Europe, South America and Australia. Are you planning to market this therapy to India and China as these two countries lead the list of most number of people with type 2 diabetes in the world?
