LifeSci Capital Initiates Coverage of Theraclion

[ACCESSWIRE]

Non-Invasive, CE Marked Instrument for Breast Fibroadenomas and Thyroid Nodules; Report Available here: www.lifescicapital.com/equity-research/theraclion/

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / July 7, 2015 / LifeSci Capital, LLC, a research-driven investment bank with deep domain expertise in the life sciences sector, today announced that it has initiated coverage of Theraclion (Euronext: ALTHE.PA), a commercial-stage company that markets the Echopulse, a non-invasive instrument for the treatment of breast fibroadenomas and thyroid nodules. The device is already on the market in Europe, and the Company is pursuing approval in the US and China. Echopulse is currently the only non-invasive therapy for breast fibroadenomas and thyroid nodules with no incision or requirement for general anesthesia.

Theraclion's Echopulse is an ultrasound-guided device that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves to selectively kill tumor cells without affecting healthy tissue. The instrument is CE marked for breast fibroadenomas and thyroid nodules in the EU and is currently being sold in select countries where CE marking is accepted. A total of 12 devices have been sold or installed to date. It is the only completely non-invasive solution for its target indications and could address a market that exceeds 900,000 patients per year in the EU, US, and China. Theraclion has initiated clinical studies in the US and is laying the groundwork in China to seek regulatory approval in these countries. Additional studies are also underway to potentially expand the Echopulse into indications that represent additional, large market opportunities.

In a 26 page Initiation Report LifeSci Capital explains the commercialization pathway and market potential for Echopulse. The report also discusses plans to expand Echopulse into the US and Chinese markets.
