“Automating stroke procedures is a significant advancement for the medical field,” emphasizes Dr. Boris Pabón, the endovascular neurosurgeon at Angiosur who performed the first-in-man procedures. “Robotic clot removal achieves a level of precision that surpasses interventional capabilities. The robotic TIGERTRIEVER gives me direct insight into the vessel characteristics and senses what I cannot–truly remarkable.”

With the press of a button, the AI-activated TIGERTRIEVER captures the blockage with active integration. The device’s radial force is then automatically reduced to minimize trauma to the brain as it is retrieved. This builds upon the excellent clinical results and procedure times seen with TIGERTRIEVER’s adjustability, further enhancing precision and streamlining workflow.

“Implementing this technology is a testament to our commitment to expanding treatment for stroke patients worldwide,” affirms Ronen Eckhouse, CEO of Rapid Medical. “We are at the forefront of advancing care—first by providing physicians with active technology and now paving a new pathway to automate procedures with intelligent control.”

The Gallup Global Emotions 2024 report reveals the emotional toll of these conflicts. The report offers a snapshot of Gallup’s latest measurements of people’s positive and negative daily experiences.

Merck Provides Update on Phase III TrilynX Study in Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer24.6.2024 22:35:00 CEST | Press release

Merck, a leading science and technology company, today announced the discontinuation of the Phase III randomized TrilynX study evaluating xevinapant plus chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with unresected locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (LA SCCHN). The decision follows a pre-planned interim analysis performed by the study’s Independent Data Monitoring Committee, which found that the trial would be unlikely to meet its primary objective of prolonging event-free survival. Top-line safety data were overall compatible with the chemo-radio sensitizing properties of xevinapant. The company will conduct an in-depth review of the data and will share the results in a peer-reviewed forum. LA SCCHN has proven to be a difficult-to-treat form of cancer. CRT has remained the standard of care for decades, despite multiple studies designed to improve outcomes with new treatment approaches, including multiple immunotherapy trials. “We sincerely thank the patients, caregiv
