HEPTA Medical

HEPTA Medical is developing a unique minimally invasive non surgical treatment modality for early lung cancer. The company is working on a sensor, embedded into a bronchoscopic or percutaneous ablation catheter, which provides temperature-based feedback. This enables real-time dosing to precisely target and ablate pulmonary nodules, the precursor of lung cancer, without the need for surgery or radiation.

HEPTA Medical has finalized its prototype design and completed its pre-clinical validation. The company is currently looking for a strategic partner to get into the clinic.
