Careful therapy of brain lesions

A tumor in the brain means major challenges –  for the patient and for healthcare. In addition, it may be difficult to reach making surgery difficult. Passing various nerve centers that control important functions of the body is critical. Supplementary treatment with chemotherapy and radiation is generally needed.

When using laser ablation in neurosurgery, so-called laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT), a region of interest is directly targeted and treated with high precision. Areas in the brain, not accessible for open surgery, can be treated as LITT is typically minimally invasive through use of MRI guidance (MRgLITT), and a stereotactic access system.

In collaboration with partners and through clinical programs, CLS is expanding into MRgLITT for treatment of patients with tumors and other lesions in the brain, including epileptogenic foci.

A new dedicated laser therapy system for neurosurgery

A system for MRI guided laser ablation in neurosurgery is cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as of September 22, 2022. It is commercialized by our partner ClearPoint Neuro Inc. under the brand name ClearPoint Prism™ Neuro Laser Therapy System, starting in the USA. 

The new system includes CLS’s:

  • Second generation Mobile Laser Unit
  • New Thermoguide Workstation
  • Portfolio of non-cooled Laser Applicators

Evaluating ablation of glioblastoma lesions

A clinical study at Skåne University Hospital, Lund , evaluating safety and feasibility using the CLS system for MRgLITT in minimally invasive ablation of lesions in the brain, such as primary tumors of patients diagnosed with glioblastoma, is now recruiting patients.

About glioblastoma

Glioblastoma is the most aggressive brain tumor and almost incurable. Despite intensive research and drug development the treatment of this disease remains a challenge. Hence, the need for new treatment options to offer affected patients is huge.

Our goal is to develop the field of therapy – by offering tools for precise and cost-efficient treatment.
