A medical device company recently won government approval for a device it claims stops excessive underarm sweating, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The company, Miramar Labs, Inc., seeks funding to help bring this product to the market. However, it is unclear when this might happen.
Miramar CEO told the Wall Street Journal's Dow Jones Financial Information Service that the device sailed through a recent randomized, blinded sham-control study with 120 patients, which was followed by a 510(k) approval by the Food and Drug Administration.
