MagForce AG: 'NanoTherm School' successfully enters its second round with
Berlin, Germany and Nevada, USA, December 11, 2019 - With "Module B - Advanced Course 1: - stereotactic Instillation" MagForce AG (Frankfurt, Scale, Xetra: MF6, ISIN: DE000A0HGQF5), a leading medical device company in the field of nanomedicine focused on oncology, conducted the second round of its 'NanoTherm School' in November. The application training series was launched in January 2019 to provide the highest quality of treatment through ongoing support for physicians and certify surgeons in the use of the innovative NanoTherm technology. Same as the first session, "Module A - The Basics", which took place at the end of January 2019, Module B, focusing on advanced techniques, was met with great excitement from participants.
The NanoTherm School is part of MagForce's roll-out strategy focusing on a broad geographic coverage to provide greater availability while also constantly working on further optimizing its therapy system and educating medical professionals in its use to provide brain tumor patients with the best care possible. The training concept of NanoTherm School was developed in close collaboration with Prof. Dr. Walter Stummer, PD Dr. Dr. Oliver Grauer, and Dr. Michael Schwake, University Hospital Münster, and PD Dr. Johannes Wölfer, Hufeland Klinikum GmbH Mühlhausen, drawing on their long-standing experience in the treatment of brain tumor patients with the NanoTherm therapy system.
Participants again included the team of Prof. Dr. med. habil. Jan-Peter Warnke, Senior Consultant in the Neurosurgical Clinic at the Paracelsus Clinic in Zwickau, with whom MagForce entered into a cooperation agreement in June 2019. Installation of the mobile treatment center was completed in summer. The NanoActivator is now ready for use at the clinic after receipt of final approval and and is now available for the treatment of patients with brain tumors.
Prof. Dr. med. habil. Jan-Peter Warnke, Senior Consultant in the Neurosurgical Clinic at the Paracelsus Clinic in Zwickau, added "Innovation is extremely important in medicine and has served our patients well. Obtaining the appropriate training in new technologies and techniques is a vital part of adopting these advances into our standard treatment regimens. Practical trainings such as MagForce's NanoTherm School are therefore very welcomed as they allow neurosurgeons to ease into the method while developing the necessary skills. Thanks to the excellent preparation and support of the MagForce team, as well as the opportunity to practice NanoTherm therapy in the most practical and extremely well-structured way, we are well prepared for the use of the therapy system at our clinic starting immediately. The use of new teaching methods for advanced technologies helps us to bring outstanding inventions to patients."
