Présentation société

Carthera® est une société de medtech en phase d’évaluation clinique qui développe des dispositifs médicaux innovants basés sur l’utilisation des ultrasons pour traiter un large éventail de pathologies cérébrales graves

Background and purpose 

Carthera, a French clinical-stage medtech company focused on developing innovative ultrasound-based medical devices to treat a wide range of brain diseases, is hiring a Quality Assurance Manager to be based in Lyon, France.

Carthera has developed the SonoCloud®, an innovative medical device that emits ultrasound to temporarily increase the permeability of blood vessels in the brain. SonoCloud® is an intracranial implant listed as a Breakthrough Device by the FDA. It disrupts the blood-brain barrier (BBB) at time of administration of therapeutic agents such as chemotherapy or immunotherapy. Several minutes of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPU) is sufficient to open the BBB for several hours, thus increasing the concentration of therapeutic molecules in the brain, and potentially their effectiveness.

Carthera is currently advancing this technology for the treatment of brain cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Its most advanced trial is a phase 3 study evaluating the efficacy of carboplatin in combination with BBB opening with the SonoCloud® for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma. This medicinal product containing carboplatin recently gained the Orphan Drug Designation in Europe and in the United States.

Carthera is recruiting a Quality Assurance Manager to strengthen the clinical team's expertise and to contribute to the development of the SonoCloud® solution.
