Positive Data from IceCure's Kidney Cancer Clinical Study Presented at Interventional Radiology Conference: Minimally Invasive Approach Results in Shorter Hospitalization and Minor Impact on Renal Function

  • ICESECRET interim results, as previously announced, demonstrated ProSense® to be safe and effective in treating kidney tumors with 89.5% recurrence-free rate
  • More data is expected in the fourth quarter of 2024, including data on patients with an average follow up of approximately 3 years 
  • $6.92 billion global kidney cancer treatment market in 2024 expected to reach $8.78 billion by 2029—ProSense® is approved for the treatment of benign and malignant kidney tumors in the U.S., Europe, and numerous other countries

CAESAREA, Israel, June 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- IceCure Medical Ltd. (Nasdaq: ICCM) ("IceCure", "IceCure Medical" or the "Company"), developer of the ProSense® System, a minimally-invasive cryoablation technology that destroys tumors by freezing as an alternative to surgical tumor removal, today announced that data from an interim analysis of its ICESECRET kidney cancer trial were presented at the 3rd Annual Israeli Conference on Interventional Radiology in Tel Aviv, Israel on June 10, 2024. Dr. Avivit Shoham, Deputy Director of the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Unit at Beilinson Rabin Medical Center, presented a session on Cryotherapy of Renal Malignancies in Israel, which included data previously shared in December 2022 at the Urological Association Conference in Eilat, Israel.

Professor Sarel Halachmi, the Principal Investigator of the ICESECRET clinical trial, said, "Cryoablation is a safe and effective, minimally invasive ablative approach for treating renal cell carcinoma presenting with tumors ≤3 centimeters, resulting in shorter hospitalization than nephrectomy and minor side effects on the renal function and on hemoglobin levels. Further studies are needed to confirm cryoablation as a viable option to treat kidney lesions."

IceCure's CEO Eyal Shamir added, "The data were very well received by interventional radiologists attending the conference from around the world and locally here in Israel. We are pleased to advance ProSense®'s applications across numerous indications. Kidney cancer is an indication in which our minimally invasive cryoablation system may offer significant benefits."

ProSense® is being evaluated for the indication of kidney cancer in ICESECRET, a prospective, multicenter, single-arm clinical trial performed at Bnai-Zion Medical Center, Haifa, Israel, and Shamir Medical Center, Zerifin, Israel. The trial includes 115 patients (138 lesions) with localized small renal masses of ≤5 centimeters who were treated with ProSense® cryoablation under CT guidance. Full engulfment of the renal lesion, including a safety margin of 0.5 centimeters was achieved in approximately 96% of the procedures where there was no anatomical limitation. Follow-up visits are performed 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, and then annually up to 5 years after the procedure. During the follow-up visits, data related to local recurrence, based on CT imaging, is collected. Safety was determined by monitoring procedure-related adverse events throughout the study.
