Cook Medical’s New Bipolar Electrodes Portfolio Includes the Most In-Demand Configurations

Cook Medical has launched a new, streamlined portfolio of urological bipolar electrodes in the U.S. This portfolio includes the products that urologists use most frequently to focus on daily electrode needs when performing procedures on the bladder and prostate.

The bipolar electrodes portfolio includes a total of seven products.1 The portfolio is streamlined to include the most frequently used and in-demand products in this category. Six of the products are configurations indicated for use in transurethral resection, ablation and soft tissue removal of the prostate and bladder and where hemostasis is required:

  • A bipolar transurethral bladder loop, which is angled at 136° to accommodate the anatomy of the bladder
  • Four transurethral cutting loops—12° and 30° options, each available in medium and large sizes
  • A bipolar transurethral needle electrode

The seventh product is the Bipolar Transurethral Plasma Disc®, which is made for electro-vaporization in urological procedures to help with vaporization of the prostate and coagulation. The patented concentric, multi-tiered disc design by Omnitech Systems, Inc., provides concentrated current density to be more energy efficient while still supporting current flow and plasma ignition.2

The distal wires of each electrode tip (except for the transurethral needle electrode) are made from a platinum-iridium alloy, which extends from the leading edge past the stabilizer. The platinum-iridium alloy is reinforced by being crimped deep into the body of the electrode for durability. The electrodes have a shelf life of five years, providing additional stock and supply benefits.

“We listened to physicians about obstacles they were facing when trying to perform resection and ablation procedures, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). For example, we learned that most bladder loops on the market were difficult to use around the bladder, so we offer a bladder loop angled at 136° to improve efficiency of surgery. With the seven products in the streamlined bipolar electrodes portfolio, we aim to help physicians focus on treating patients with products they use frequently,” said Rob Faulkner, senior director of Cook Medical’s Urology specialty.

Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”

“We are excited to present the first look at the safety and clinical activity of ELVN-001, which we believe supports the potential for ELVN-001 to address the limitations of the available active-site TKIs,” said Helen Collins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Enliven. “Across a wide dose range, ELVN-001 demonstrated activity in a heavily pre-treated patient population that includes post-asciminib patients, with a preliminary safety profile consistent with its highly selective design. Not only did all evaluable patients have improved or stable BCR::ABL1 transcript levels, but, importantly, 89% of all patients enrolled remain on study. We believe the initial data demonstrate the potential clinical utility of ELVN-001 for all types of patients, including those that are earlier in the treatment paradigm.”
