NovelStem Announces FDA Pre-Submission and EMA In Vitro Diagnostic Device Filing for Revolutionary Life-Saving, Treatment-Changing Diagnostic Device by 30%-Owned NewStem, Ltd
In this situation, it may be a good time for investors to take a look at the announcement from the company on Monday. The company announced that it had sent in the pre-submission for a De Novo Request to the United States Food and Drug Administration in relation to its NewStem Software Diagnostic Device.
In this context, it is perhaps important to point out that the announcement was made by NovelStem after it graduated from the 3rd funding cycle from Illumina’s Accelerator last month. While the latest announcement from NovelStem was an important one, it did not come as a source of optimism for investors and the stock continued to be in free fall. It is now going to be interesting to see if the stock can manage to have a rebound at any point over the course of this week.
