Q’Apel Medical, Inc. Awarded U.S. Patent for Its Highly Innovative SelectFlex™ Technology

Q’Apel Medical, Inc., an innovative neurovascular company specializing in developing and commercializing novel access device technology for vascular interventions, is pleased to announce today that the United States Patent & Trademark Office has granted the company U.S. Patent No. 11,123,522 covering important features of its differentiated dual-mode catheter designs.

The SelectFlex™ variable stiffness technology provides unparalleled tracking and support in neurovascular access cases. Comprised of two operational modes, tracking mode and support mode allows physicians to switch between modes on-demand in a clinical case. By injecting 0.2cc of saline, and the technology goes into track mode, becoming soft and flexible for tracking into distal neurovasculature. By applying vacuum, the technology transitions into support mode, maintaining its shape and resists bending.

“SelectFlex™ technology is an important innovation for Q’Apel Medical because it allows us to make catheters that have a mix of trackability and support that is unparalleled in the industry. We can transition from very soft and flexible to highly supportive device on the fly during the case, and it is easily controlled by the user. We look forward to continue differentiating our products through the application of SelectFlex™ technology,” said Jeff Krolik, CTO.

“Our ability to identify unmet clinical needs and build cutting-edge solutions in a timely manner is what differentiates us from our contemporaries. The SelectFlex™ technology plays a huge role in our success and is foundational in our product pipeline,” said King Nelson, CEO.

Q’Apel Medical has other pending patent applications and plans to acquire CE Certification and expand into Europe later this year. Q’Apel Medical products are currently being utilized in over 200 hospital systems nationwide.

Data from clinical studies of STK-001 demonstrated clinical benefit for patients ages 2 to 18 years old, including reductions in seizures and improvements in cognition and behavior that support the potential for disease modificatio. Analysis of 72 patients treated in STK-001 clinical trials suggests that higher STK-001 drug exposure in brain leads to greater seizure reductions. Two-year data from the longest prospective natural history study of Dravet syndrome showed that, on average, patients experienced no meaningful improvement in convulsive seizure frequency and exhibited widening gaps in cognition and behavior despite treatment with the best available anti-seizure medicines.
"Exact Sciences is looking forward to presenting new evidence at SABCS that adds important perspectives to treating breast cancer patients and showing that some patients may be able to de-escalate treatments and still have positive outcomes," said Dr. Rick Baehner, Chief Medical Officer, Precision Oncology, Exact Sciences. "Every year, we build upon the precedent set by the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® test and its prognostic and predictive abilities to determine the chemotherapy benefit for specific breast cancer patients. We are pleased to see authorities expanding access to this test as we continue to develop key evidence in collaboration with some of the world's most prestigious, breast cancer-focused organizations."
Clozapine has been established as the most effective antipsychotic medication for treatment-resistant schizophrenia. However, it is significantly underutilized mainly due to the risk of developing agranulocytosis and the need to frequently monitor the absolute neutrophil count (ANC).
Dagi-Ben Noon, CEO of Inspira Technologies, reflects on the partnership's significance: "By Integrating our technology to oxygenate blood directly with Ennocure's infection prevention solutions, we are focusing on potentially improving patient outcomes in ICUs and paving the way for safer, more effective life-support treatments. This collaboration is expected to accelerate the development and broaden the implementation of our advanced technology."
The findings suggest that the novel, non-invasive genomic test can help physicians guide next steps for these patients, enabling them to potentially avoid unnecessary invasive procedures or accelerate time to appropriate treatment.
