Q-linea submits US market application to FDA

Q-linea AB (publ) (OMX: QLINEA) today announces that the company has submitted a 510(k) application to the FDA to gain US market authorization.

“This is a major milestone for us and an important step towards the US market. The next step will be the review of our clinical study data by the FDA, and I hope that the breakthrough designation we received in April 2022 could enable a prioritized review. We are encouraged about the results in the study, and I am looking forward to our future launch of ASTar in the USA,” said Jonas Jarvius, CEO of Q-linea.
