PatenSee Initiates 1st In-Human Trial with its Contactless Imaging Surveillance System for Patients Undergoing Hemodialysis

IN.PACT AV Drug-Coated Balloon Is First and Only to Show Superior and Sustained Results Through Two Years Compared to PTA in Treating Arteriovenous Fistulae Lesions

The data, which were presented virtually as a podium first at the 2021 Charing Cross Symposium, demonstrated that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the first and only DCB to show sustained and superior effectiveness through two years compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with de novo or non-stented restenotic native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) in the upper extremity.

Martell Diagnostic Laboratories Announces HERTEST: Groundbreaking Way to Detect Effectiveness of Breast Cancer RX Globally

HERTEST is a blood test that looks for a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2), which is shed into the blood stream of patients with growing breast cancer tumors.

ESPRIT CAM Improves Productivity for Long Part Machining by Automating Multi-spindle Program Creation

ESPRIT CAM: New computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) technology has been introduced by ESPRIT CAM, part of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division that provides manufacturers with the control and flexibility needed to use multi-spindle and multi-channel computer-numerical-control (CNC) machinery for the machining of long parts.

PatenSee, a developer of a contact-free surveillance tool designed to identify asymptomatic stenosis, today announced the initiation of its first-in-human clinical trial for its machine vision-based surveillance system.

PatenSee notes the trial, led by Prof. Benaya Rozen-zvi, director of the Institute for Nephrology and Hypertension at Rabin Medical Center, will evaluate the system’s ability to perform contact-free surveillance of fistula stenosis similar to a nurse’s physical exam of hemodialysis patients.

“The clinical data we collect will be the first of its kind and will provide a critical step towards a reliable contact-free early detection tool for fistula stenosis,” explained Prof. Benaya Rozen-zvi. “Keeping the fistula open is a major clinical need, and early detection of stenosis allows for both simpler treatment and better prognosis for the patient.”

He added, “The non-invasive, contactless nature of PatenSee’s system adds another important benefit for both in-patient settings as well as in homecare in the future. The ability to assess patients effectively at a distance has become particularly important for both patients and clinicians during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.”

“The trial initiation is a significant milestone for PatenSee,” said Dr. Gal Goshen, CEO of PatenSee. “We are excited to complete all bench testing required to bring the system to the clinical stage and look forward to providing a reliable early detection system for fistula stenosis that can save lives, reduce suffering and address a challenge currently costing for payers and providers millions of dollars every year.”

Collaboration with the medical doctors and nurses involved in the trial enabled easy integration of PatenSee’s system into the patient workflow of the dialysis center. The system is used in the pre-dialysis waiting room with minimal to no intervention of the medical staff and no interruption to the workflow.
