ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. Announces Installation of ClearPoint® Neuro Navigation System at Hôpital Fondation Rothschild in Paris
ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLPT), a global therapy-enabling platform company providing navigation and delivery to the brain, today announced the installation of its ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System at Hôpital Fondation Rothschild in Paris, France.
“We have embarked on a promising clinical trial collaboration with ClearPoint Neuro for laser interstitial thermal ablations in pediatric neurosurgical brain pathologies. The use of ClearPoint will allow the entire procedure to take place within the MRI suite, instead of moving the patient from the operating room to the MRI, as is the workflow with current commercially available systems,” stated Dr. Georg Dorfmüller, Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Hôpital Fondation Rothschild. “Intra-procedural MRI guidance can allow a neurosurgeon to modify a planned laser probe trajectory prior to insertion, or correct probe placement if it appears suboptimal on imaging. For larger, more complex intracerebral lesions, we believe using ClearPoint will also help with the placement of more than one laser probe. The ClearPoint team has been supportive, and we are eager to begin the planned clinical trial in the very near future.”
“Hôpital Fondation Rothschild has a long history of adopting cutting edge technologies for head and neck indications,” commented Matt Rabon, Clinical and Business Development Manager, EMEA. “Now that we have a European-based team in place, we look forward to supporting Dr. Dorfmüller, and advancing our strategy to set up additional trial centers in the EU, UK and Middle East to support both our biologics and device partnerships. Each of these installations provides us with an opportunity to treat patients today with meaningful device therapies, and to empower brilliant researchers to conduct clinical trials in both the biologics and device spaces using ClearPoint technology. Expanding and supporting the EU installation base also represents ClearPoint Neuro’s strategic investment in the region by enabling future partnerships with pharmaceutical and biotech companies to discover therapies for the most complex neurological disorders.”
