FDA Approves INSIGHTEC's Next Generation Exablate Fibroid Treatment System
Oct 7 15
INSIGHTEC announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its next generation Exablate system to treat symptomatic uterine fibroids and changed the labeling to allow consideration for women who desire to maintain fertility. The updated labeling specifies that ablation of uterine fibroid tissue can now be considered for women with symptomatic uterine fibroids, who desire to retain fertility and spare their uterus. INSIGHTEC's Exablate therapy platform is transforming medicine by presenting a non-invasive treatment alternative that combines two technologies: Focused Ultrasound, which is used to ablate the fibroid tissue, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), which is used to guide the ultrasound waves to the specific target tissue and provide real-time feedback on treatment progress and outcome. This change in labeling provides younger women suffering from symptomatic fibroids access to a new, non-invasive treatment option that is safe, effective and keeps their uterus intact without compromising their existing ability to get pregnant. Theapproval is based on accumulated, documented clinical dataon118 patients'pregnancies post Exablate MRgFUS treatments.

INSIGHTEC Ltd Announces Launch of Neurosurgery System on 1.5T MRI Platform
May 20 15
INSIGHTEC Ltd. announced the expansion of its innovative, non-invasive neurosurgery system from 3T to 1.5T MRI systems. This launch significantly expands the potential market for INSIGHTEC'S ExAblate Neuro as 1.5T systems are the most common MRI systems in use today. The system is immediately available in the European market and is pending regulatory approvals in additional markets. This product expansion is made possible by an INSIGHTEC designed custom imaging coil that improves the intra-operative imaging performance on the 1.5T MRI to allow for this highly precise surgery. The first two treatments were successfully performed in Palermo, Italy led by the Departments of Radiological Sciences at the University Hospital 'Paolo Giaccone' of Palermo and Sapienza University of Rome, School of Medicine, with the collaboration of leading neurosurgeons from both Centro Diagnostico Italiano (CDI) and Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta of Milano. The system acquisition was made through a research grant from the Italian Ministry of Education and Research.
