Job: Clinical Trial Manager – US

Ablative Solutions, Inc.

More than 1 billion people have hypertension (high blood pressure). More than half the people treated for hypertension and not able to do not achieve target (control) blood pressure of 130mmHG systolic over 80mmHg diastolic.

Ablative Solutions, Inc. (ASI) has developed propriety technology to treat uncontrolled hypertension

  • The Peregrine System™ Kit includes the Peregrine System™ Infusion Catheter (Peregrine Catheter) and Ablative Solutions Inc.’s Dehydrated Alcohol (ETOH).
  • The minimally invasive procedure is performed under mild/conscious sedation.
  • The Peregrine Catheter is advanced through a small incision in the groin and guided up to the renal arteries using angiography (X-ray with contrast). The system will deliver a small dose of dehydrated alcohol to the region just outside the artery (perivascular space), where the nerves are located, to interrupt the over-signaling of the sympathetic nervous system, that contributes to hypertension; this form of therapy is called alcohol-mediated renal denervation.

The company raised $77 million in capital in January of 2019 to develop the clinical program to obtain the CE Mark and FDA approval for the Peregrine System Kit. The company is currently conducting clinical studies in Europe and the United States to collect data in support of regulatory submissions intended to gain the above approvals and bring this therapy to market.
