New Device Targets Solid Tumors

A new technology developed by CAPS Medical, an Or Yehuda based start-up, has innovated Cold Atmospheric Plasma (CAP) technology, usually used to treat superficial solid tumors, to now target solid, internal organ tumors.  In collaboration with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, CAPS Medical has created device small enough to administer the treatment on solid tumors inside the body.

CEO, Ilan Uchitel, said “[We are] progressing with our research and development to develop the next generation of our device. We should be ready for commercialization of the treatment by the end of 2022.”
