FDA Clears New Applicators for Endometrial Cancer Treatment With Xoft's Axxent(R) Electronic Brachytherapy System
Date:5/21/2008

ivering electronic, X-ray-based radiation treatment, the proprietary Axxent treatment platform can be used in virtually any clinical setting under the supervision of a radiation oncologist. Eliminating the need for heavily shielded environments, it gives radiation oncologists the flexibility to deliver therapy in a broader range of clinical settings. With the treatment of early stage breast cancer, the Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System also provides the opportunity to reduce the therapy time required from seven weeks (for external radiation therapy) down to five days. As a result, tens of thousands of patients will have greater access to therapy that is delivered more easily and conveniently. This may accelerate patient choice of breast sparing lumpectomy surgery with adjuvant radiation therapy over the alternative of a full mastectomy.

"The second FDA clearance we have received in as many months, this indication for the treatment of endometrial cancer firmly establishes the Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System as a broad based oncology treatment platform with special emphasis on women's health," said Michael Klein, president and CEO of Xoft. "While our first indication for the treatment of breast cancer is steadily gaining momentum in the radiation oncology community, the use of brachytherapy in the treatment of endometrial cancer is already well established and growing in practice. We are proud to expand into new areas and expect that these new indications will continue to improve access to critical cancer treatment."
