OnePass Medical Ltd is a development stage company based in Israel that has developed a disposable multi-needle device, the first and only solution that enables taking biopsies simultaneously from 5 different locations in a tumor. In addition, with a slight modification, it can be used as a therapeutic delivery system such as RF ablation, Chemotherapy, biological drugs, and marking.
Pancreatic tumor is currently the 3rd most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the US and is expected to be the 2nd most common cause by 2030.
EUS-guided FNA (EUS-FNA) is an established technique for tissue acquisition and is considered the most sensitive and accurate diagnostic procedure for the evaluation of malignant and benign pancreatic lesions. However, Pancreatic EUS-FNA diagnosis has a false negative rate ranging up to 20-40% of cases due to sampling error, in the case of pancreatic cancer this translates to patient death in 95% of the cases.
In most cases the tumor is benign and the patient is being invited routinely for monitoring because those tumors tend to turn malignant and when that is happening the patient is being invited to surgery – those surgeries are considered high risk and the physicians tends to avoid it as much as possible.
