Dr. Laurent Fiorina, the operating Electrophysiologist at ICPS and the site’s Principal Investigator commented: “Enrolling the first patients in the VISABL-AFL clinical trial represents a significant step forward for the future of 3D real-time MRI ablations in the iCMR lab. Performing procedures with Imricor’s NorthStar 3D Mapping System is a game-changer for this field, and it will have a transformative impact. I look forward to the continued partnership with Imricor.”

The VISABL-AFL (NCT05904548) clinical investigation is a prospective, single-arm, multi-center, interventional, Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) trial. The primary objectives of VISABL-AFL are to assess the safety and efficacy of radiofrequency (RF) ablation of type-I atrial flutter performed with the Vision-MR Ablation Catheter 2.0 in the iCMR environment. The sample size is 91 patients, with an interim analysis after 76 patients have achieved the 7-day follow-up. The study includes four hospitals in the U.S. and Europe.

Professor Dr. Jerome Garot, Head of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, commented: “We did the first two cases of RF flutter ablations with the Imricor system, and it went quite smoothly. We are very enthusiastic about it!”

Included in the VISABL-AFL trial is Imricor’s proprietary NorthStar Mapping System. NorthStar allows the user to control the MRI scanner, receive MR images in real-time from the scanner, display those MR images in 3D, actively track Imricor trackable devices, and create 3D electroanatomical maps that include intracardiac electrogram signals from Imricor’s Advantage-MR system.

Imricor’s Senior Director of Clinical, Kate Lindborg, commented: “Today’s important milestone would not have been possible without the partnership of the entire team at ICPS, whose collaboration and support are essential to the success of this trial. It is a privilege to work alongside such an esteemed hospital and the dedicated team at Imricor where we both share in the goal of improving patient outcomes and enhancing the quality of care.”

New Esri Press Book by Jack Dangermond Explores Creating a Better Future through Modern GIS17.7.2024 20:46:00 CEST | Press release

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication next month of The Power of Where: A Geographic Approach to the World's Greatest Challenges. Written by Esri president Jack Dangermond with a dedicated Esri team and numerous contributors, this important new book explores the geographic approach—a way of solving problems using spatial analysis to perceive and understand patterns ranging from wildlife migration and rising seas to urban planning and food production. According to Dangermond, sustainability begins with geography. "I believed this when we started Esri, and I'm even more convinced today," says Dangermond. "GIS [geographic information system technology] provides a platform for addressing problems, exploring alternatives, designing solutions, and sharing them in a visual way that inspires action." The Power of Where shows through maps and stories how the growing GIS community is facing humanity's big challenges, including climate change, hunger, w

Egle Therapeutics to share preclinical data for its first autoimmune disease program, EGL-003, with an oral presentation at the 2024 Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy Meeting17.7.2024 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

Egle Therapeutics, a biotechnology company focused on advancing the next generation of regulatory T cell-focused therapies for oncology and auto-immunity, will deliver an oral presentation at The Promise of Interleukin-2 Therapy meeting taking place in Paris from September 4th to 7th, 2024. The presentation, entitled “EGL-003, a novel IL-2 mutein to selectively expand and activate regulatory T cells and improve therapeutic efficacy in autoimmune disease”, will show evidence that EGL-003, a non-targeted Fc-fused IL-2 agonist mutein, selectively binds to regulatory T cells (Treg) and induces Treg IL-2 signaling. The resulting increase of Treg frequencies was observed in vitro and in different mouse models. Accordingly, EGL-003 significantly improved clinical, macroscopic, and histological parameters in a DSS-induced colitis mouse model with expansion of tissue-resident Tregs. EGL-003 is the first drug candidate being developed for treatment of autoimmune diseases in Egle’s pipeline and h
