nCLE Solution for Applications in Lung Cancer and Other Pulmonary Diseases during ERS 2018

  • The availability of the needle-based Cellvizio platform, now bearing CE mark, could be a game changer for the management of patients with certain pulmonary diseases including lung cancer.
  • Ground-breaking work from the interventional pulmonology team at the Amsterdam Academic Medical Center will be highlighted among five other presentation sessions during ERS, the largest meeting of respiratory professionals in the world.

Mauna Kea Technologies today announced the introduction of its needle-based Cellvizio solution for use in lung cancer and respiratory diseases applications during the European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress 2018, being held September 15-19, in Paris, France.

During the congress, there will be an oral presentation from Dr. Lizzy Wijmans, Amsterdam, Netherlands on the topic of needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (nCLE) for Diagnosing Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma, showing positive results for Cellvizio. There are also five additional presentations using needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy across different indications showing the growing momentum of the Cellvizio platform in pulmonology.

“Our presence and robust presentation schedule at this year’s ERS congress reflects the introduction of our ground-breaking needle-based endomicroscopy solution in the lung disease space. These presentations add to the growing body of evidence for Cellvizio as a valuable tool for the detection, diagnosis and treatment management of a range of pulmonary diseases,” said Sacha Loiseau, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mauna Kea Technologies. “In particular, the unique ability of Cellvizio to get to the core of pulmonary lesions through a needle is a unique offer which could dramatically improve the management of patients with suspicion of lung cancer. This opens up important possibilities for Cellvizio in the management of the second most prevalent cancer worldwide.”
