 Project objective

Currently, there are 1.2M people afflicted by Parkinson’s disease (PD) only in EU and the incidence is forecast to double by 2050 primarily as a result of the ageing population. They require high invasive treatments when drug therapy and early medication are not effective anymore. Then, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is the most commonly performed surgical treatment for Parkinson's patients, consisting in electrical stimulation of the deep regions of the brain responsible for movement disorders such tremors, stiffness and trouble walking. However, this treatment is highly-invasive and may lead to serious complications like hemorrhages and infections. Neuroparticle developed the Magnetic Particle Therapy (MPT), an ultra-compact, low-cost and non-invasive system for DBS in PD treatment. This stimulation is performed by image-guided placement of magnetic nanoparticles into the brain. The Neuroparticle’s system has been tested in various pre-clinical trials with excellent results published on peer- reviewed medical journals and presented at scientific conferences. This technological breakthroughs also enables meaningful reduction in size as it weighs only 90 kg and is perfectly head-sized (no shielding needed), saving hospitals valuable space and requiring less initial investment on setup labor. Finally, preliminary cost estimates show that the Neuroparticle’s system will allow hospitals to save up to 2/3 on cost of purchase and installation relative to competitors. During the Phase 1 feasibility assessment, in conjunction with partners, Neuroparticle will identify specific private hospitals to sell to. Target markets of Germany, Italy and Spain will be sized and contacts established. A supply chain procedure will be established in order to insure fast delivery for machine setup. As R&D continues, additional IP will be updated via patents.
