The ReCET Procedure
ReCET is a novel, endoscopic, outpatient procedure that targets the underlying cellular abnormalities in the duodenum that contribute to the development and progression of Type 2 Diabetes.
Through the application of highly controlled, non-thermal pulsed electric fields, the ReCET procedure is designed to initiate the body’s natural regenerative process to restore proper cellular signaling from the duodenum and improve metabolic function, including better control of blood glucose levels.
The ReCET Procedure is currently being evaluated in global pre-commercialization trials assessing its safety and efficacy in adults with Type 2 Diabetes who are inadequately controlled despite the use of insulin and non-insulin medications. The ReCET procedure has received Breakthrough Device Designation from the FDA for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in adult patients inadequately controlled by glucose lowering medications.
Endogenex is a privately held, clinical stage company headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. Endogenex was founded, in partnership with Mayo Clinic, to develop therapies to improve outcomes for people living with Type 2 Diabetes. Endogenex’s focus is centered on the principle that effective treatment for Type 2 Diabetes can extend beyond pharmaceutical options, correct metabolic function and help people regain control of their blood glucose levels.
