Dr. Gilles Huberfeld to Lead First In-Human Trial of Panaxium’s Next-Generation Brain Computer Interface

Iontronic neural interface enables much higher resolution mapping than conventional systems and when combined with leading-edge medical imaging unlocks unprecedented real-time intelligence, providing neurosurgeons with decisive functional mapping information to preserve important brain tissues during resection and to reduce time of surgery. 

Toronto, Canada, and Aix-en-Provence, France, November 1, 2022 – Bioelectronic medicine company Panaxium announces that Dr. Gilles Huberfeld, MD, PhD, neurologist and researcher at Hôpital Fondation Adolphe de Rothschild, is leading the 1st humans patient investigations of its next-generation iontronic brain computer interface in 2023 in Paris, France. 

The project is under the coordination of Inserm (Micro ECoGG study – Intraoperative MicroElectroCorticoGraphy of gliomas), with Dr. Michel LE VAN QUYEN, PhD., Biomedical Imaging Laboratory (INSERM U1146, Sorbonne University), and in collaboration with Hôpital Sainte Anne and Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, France.  

Panaxium’s ultra-flexible iontronic electrocorticography (ECoG) platform will be eventually incorporated into Synaptive Medical’s Modus robotic exoscope technology to provide unparalleled real-time intelligence on bioelectrical connections and decisive functional mapping information during procedures. This will help preserve important brain tissues during resection, reduce procedure duration, and improve post-surgery outcomes for the most life-threatening brain disorders.

“The ability to build up pathological biomarker maps with micro-resolution electrocorticography over large areas of the cortex is a huge step forward for clinical research,” says Dr. Huberfeld. “The alignment of ultra-precise electrophysiological information with a patient’s surgical planning information in real-time makes the Synaptive-Panaxium solution the ultimate neuro-navigation tool for brain surgery.”

This innovation will allow neurosurgeons to obtain finer information on brain function and the impact of lesions, with better spatiotemporal resolution and better sensitivity.
