Gamma Tile/GT Medical Technologies

Driven to overcome the limitations of current treatments for brain tumors and improve the standard of care, a team of brain tumor specialists joined forces and formed GT Medical Technologies with the purpose of improving the lives of patients with brain tumors. Its GammaTile Therapy received FDA 510(k) regulatory clearance for the treatment of all types of recurrent brain tumors and newly diagnosed malignant tumors. 3D, resorbable collagen tiles, embedded with radiation sources, are implanted during the last five minutes of brain tumor resection procedures, providing an immediate, dose-intense treatment to eliminate residual tumor cells. This “one and done” procedure allows patients to receive their course of radiation while going about their daily lives, requiring no additional trips to the hospital or clinic for radiation therapy. GammaTile is available in top brain tumor centers across the United States. For more information or to find a GammaTile center near you, visit https://www.gtmedtech.com/ and follow @GammaTile on Twitter and LinkedIn.

OncoSynergy, Inc.

OncoSynergy is a physician-led, clinical-stage immuno-oncology company on a mission to dramatically improve outcomes for patients suffering from the worst cancers. OncoSynergy’s lead therapeutic, OS2966, is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1 trial for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma. OS2966 is an antibody that blocks cell surface receptors that govern fundamental biological processes that allow cancer cells to grow, spread and become resistant to cancer treatment. Successful treatments of glioblastoma has been limited by the presence of the brain’s protective blood brain barrier (BBB). To overcome this obstacle, a technique called convection-enhanced-delivery (CED) is utilized to deliver OS2966 directly to the site of disease. Convection-enhanced delivery involves placement of one or more catheters into the brain in order to slowly infuse a therapy into the tissue. To be eligible for this study participants must require surgical resection of their recurrent glioblastoma. Learn more at oncosynergy.com
