Infuseon Therapeutics, Inc. CMO Discusses Delivery of Therapeutics Directly to the Brain at NeuroTech Investing and Partnering Conference
Cleveland, Ohio- Infuseon Therapeutics, Inc., the company that enables therapeutic delivery to the brain, announces that Dr. Michael A. Vogelbaum, Chief Medical Officer and co-inventor of the Cleveland Multiport Catheter system, will be speaking at the NeuroTech Investing and Partnering Conference taking place in Boston on Thursday, April 7.
Dr. Vogelbaum, a brain surgeon at Cleveland Clinic, will be part of the “Therapeutic and Gene Delivery in Neuroscience” panel discussion. The panel will be focused on next generation strategies for bypassing the blood brain barrier, including devices, carrier and nanovesicle technologies. Case studies in glioblastoma, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and other areas will highlight the potential for new classes of treatments to be developed.
“The unmet need and true therapeutic target in glioblastoma is the infiltrating tumor that extends beyond the enhancing tumor,” said Vogelbaum, the associate director of the Brain Tumor and Neuro-Oncology Center at Cleveland Clinic.
“The Cleveland Multiport Catheter is designed specifically to deliver therapeutics to regions of brain, not just a small, localized target, thus addressing the problem of accessing infiltrating tumor or other regional targets in the brain. Our first-in-human clinical trial uses a co-delivered contrast agent which has allowed us to objectively validate the delivery to a volume of brain,” said Vogelbaum.
“We are pleased to be advancing the delivery of therapeutics that would otherwise be prevented from reaching their targets in the brain by the blood brain barrier,” he added.
