Minimally-invasive ProSense® cryoablation offers highly favorable healthcare economics


CAESAREA, Israel, April 15, 2024 – IceCure Medical Ltd. (Nasdaq: ICCM) (“IceCure” 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, announced today that it has submitted final data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) requesting marketing authorization for ProSense® for the indication of treating patients with early stage T1 invasive breast cancer with cryoablation and adjuvant hormone therapy. ProSense®, which received the FDA’s Breakthrough Designation, is already cleared for use in the U.S. for several other indications, including treating benign tumors of the breast, and tumors in the kidney and liver.


The Company provided the following requested data to the FDA:


ICE3 5-year follow up full data-set;
sub-analysis of the ICE3 results compared with data from the “LUMINA” study (a study sponsored by Canada’s Ontario Clinical Oncology Group, which evaluated the risk of recurrence in patients with low-risk Luminal A breast cancer who were treated with lumpectomy surgery and who had received adjuvant hormone therapy);
analysis of the ICE3 data compared to an updated PRISMA meta-analysis; and
real-world data from the use of ProSense® globally, including post-market commercial use as well as data from independent third-party studies.


The ICE3 study was the largest controlled multicenter clinical trial ever performed for liquid nitrogen (LN2) based cryoablation of low-risk, early-stage malignant breast tumors. The 5-year recurrence-free rates from this groundbreaking study, which evaluated IceCure’s minimally invasive 20-to-40-minute outpatient cryoablation procedure, were in line with expectations and show similar outcomes to lumpectomy, the current standard of care for early-stage breast cancer patients.


Per the analysis, at the 5-year follow-up evaluation, 96.3% of the subgroup of patients treated with ProSense® cryoablation, followed by hormone therapy, were estimated to be free from local recurrence. A comparison of this result, from the ICE3 study, shows similar outcomes in 5-year recurrence rates compared to patients who were treated with lumpectomy followed by hormone therapy in the LUMINA study, which reported a 97.7% recurrence free rate at 5-year follow up and the PRISMA meta-study, which included Lumina, reporting a 97.19% recurrence free rate at 5-year follow up. ICE3 results are also in line with data from real-world use of ProSense® by third parties in territories where IceCure’s cryoablation system is used to treat early-stage breast cancer. In the final ICE3 analysis, no significant device related adverse events or complications were reported, and all patients and physicians reported satisfaction with the ProSense® procedure.





“We believe ICE3 is a ground-breaking study and are excited to report that the efficacy data of our minimally invasive ProSense® cryoablation procedure show similar outcomes in recurrence compared to more invasive breast surgery, the current standard of care for early-stage breast cancer,” stated IceCure CEO, Eyal Shamir.


“I, along with our marketing and clinical team, were at the ASBrS Annual Meeting where we witnessed an overwhelmingly positive response from breast surgeons who voted on Dr. Fine’s presentation to win the Scientific Impact Award, demonstrating how impactful our cryoablation technology is expected to be for women with early-stage breast cancer. Further demonstrating its potential, ASBrS’s President-Elect Dr. Berry deemed cryoablation is ready for prime time.”


“Initial reimbursement codes are already in place and our U.S. marketing and commercial team is ready, as we await the FDA’s response. Driven by favorable healthcare economics combined with patient satisfaction and demand, we expect rapid adoption pending FDA granting the DeNovo Classification Request for Marketing Approval.”


Topline Data Presented at the ASBrS 2024 Annual Meeting


Final data from ICE3 were presented to leading breast surgeons from across the U.S. at the ASBrS 25th Annual Meeting by ICE3 Investigators Dr. Richard Fine and Dr. Michael Berry. Dr. Fine gave an oral presentation titled “Cryoablation Without Excision for Early-Stage Breast Cancer; ICE3 Trial 5 year follow up on Ipsilateral Breast Tumor Recurrence.” Dr. Berry, President-Elect of the ASBrS, gave an oral presentation titled “Cryoablation: Is It Ready for Primetime?”


Dr. Berry stated, “In my opinion, cryoablation is ‘primetime’ as an alternative to surgical resection in a highly selected patient population based on data that show it is safe and aligned with what we are seeing in standard of care.”


Dr. Fine commented, “Cryoablation is a safe, minimally invasive ablative procedure with acceptably low 5-year same breast recurrence similar to that of lumpectomy for similar patient populations, with the benefit of being an office-based, nonsurgical treatment. Further study within a clinical trial or registry is needed to confirm cryoablation as a viable alternative to surgical excision in the appropriately selected patients.”


Healthcare Economics


As a minimally invasive outpatient procedure with no need for general anesthesia, cryoablation costs less than standard of care lumpectomy. It also reduces risk of re-excision (follow up surgery) as compared to a re-excision rate of 14-21% in lumpectomy.


IceCure’s application to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the first and only Medicare coverage approval of a cryoablation procedure for breast cancer. CMS assigned CPT Category III code 0581T to ambulatory payment classification 5091, Level 1 Breast/Lymphatic Surgery and Related payment assignment by the CMS at approximately $3,400 for the facility fee alone. Additional coverage, including payment for the physician, is expected upon establishment of the permanent CPT Category I code, which is conditioned on factors including the Company’s receipt of FDA marketing authorization of ProSense® for breast cancer.
