Ablative Solutions, Inc., has received U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance for its Peregrine System™ Infusion Catheter. The system uses a unique, patent-pending technology to deliver diagnostic and therapeutic agents directly to the perivascular layer that surrounds blood vessels.
Founded as recently as 2011, Ablative Solutions has developed endovascular catheters that are designed to provide a durable and cost-effective means for the targeted delivery of diagnostic and therapeutic agents to the perivascular space of blood vessels to address life-threatening diseases.
The perivascular region is known to be dynamic and consists of sympathetic nerves, lymphatic vessels, and a rich diversity of cells that can influence blood vessel function, repair and disease. For example, it has recently been shown that overactive sympathetic nerves residing in the perivascular space are associated with hypertension, metabolic syndrome, congestive heart failure and obesity.
“Cardiovascular disease can impact so many aspects of patient health,” observed Prof. Dr. med. Horst Sievert, Director and Founder of the Cardiovascular Center Frankfurt (CVC Frankfurt). “As we deepen our scientific understanding of the underlying disease processes, advances in technology can facilitate further insight and can aid in the development of better treatments. I am eager to work with the Ablative Solutions team to explore how to incorporate the Peregrine System into clinical practice.”
