OWEGO, NY — CPSI Biotech is proud to announce the issuance of a patent (US Pat#: 9,566,105) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office covering device design and method of use of a new multi-functional thermal ablation technology to be used for the treatment of diseases ranging from cancer or heart disease.
This multi-functional thermal ablation technology offers the ability to apply both heat and cryogenic energy to tissue using a single device, enabling controlled, real-time application of a dual thermal ablation strategy. The dual thermal ablation system enables the delivery of a multitude of therapeutic treatment options, including heat and cold, along with anti-cancer agents, alone or in any combination as desired. Dr. John M. Baust, President and CEO of CPSI Biotech, stated “This technological platform will offer a physician the ability to apply both heat and cryotherapy in conjunction or alone, all from a single probe to ablate targeted tissue. The ability to deliver multiple ablative energy insults in a single device will eliminate the need for multiple systems and probe switching during a procedure, thereby reducing patient risk, procedure time and overall cost.”
Regarding CPSI Biotech’s future plans for the technology, Baust stated, “We continue to work on the development of this innovative technology. Our goal is to move through the R&D phase and into pilot studies with a clinical collaborator with this technology over the next year.”
