Before Treatment After Treatment
“I just wanted to share this result with you. I never thought this ear would be saved. Today was the fourth time we’ve implanted beads, but as you can see, the results are pretty dramatic. I am impressed and the owner is absolutely thrilled. I’m sure the horse feels better too! I love the safety and ease of working with your product. Thanks!”

Current Clinical Trial(s)
A clinical trial is currently being conducted at multiple sites across the US in support of the desired indication:
“the local treatment of sarcoids up to 3 cm in diameter, following surgical debulking via sharp excision excluding lesions that are flat or those that are located within 1.5 cm of a vital anatomical structure, such as the eye, urethra, or rectum in horses.”
Upon completion of the trial, targeted for 2020, a “Reasonable Expectation of Effectiveness” (RXE) will be submitted to the Center for Veterinary Medicine at the FDA in support of Royer Biomedical’s rolling New Animal Drug Application.
