Huiheng Medical, Inc. Announces Agreement to Acquire the ClearPath (TM) Breast Brachytherapy System
Date:6/2/2010

SHENZHEN, China, June 2 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Huiheng Medical, Inc. ("Huiheng" or the "Company"; OTC Bulletin Board: HHGM) announces that the Company has entered into an agreement to acquire all of the existing and outstanding shares of Portola Medical, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Portola"). Portola owns assets consisting of the rights to develop, manufacture and market the ClearPath (TM) breast brachytherapy system ("ClearPath (TM)").

About ClearPath (TM)

ClearPath (TM) is a unique multi-channel catheter brachytherapy, or internal radiation therapy, device used in breast cancer treatments designed to preserve the breast. Early stage breast cancer can often be effectively treated by a combination of a lumpectomy, a surgical procedure to remove a breast tumor, followed by radiation therapy treatment to kill any stray cancer cells around the tumor site that may not have been removed through surgery. Instead of irradiating the entire breast with an external beam of radiation, ClearPath (TM) brachytherapy can be employed to limit radiation exposure to the narrow margin of tissue surrounding the tumor site cavity where the residual cancer cells are most likely to occur.

The ClearPath (TM) device is placed in the resection cavity after a lumpectomy through a single incision. Once inside the cavity, the device expands so that the catheters, which are filled with a radiation source, conform to the shape of and make contact with the walls of the resection cavity, exposing that limited area to radiation. ClearPath's (TM) unique design allows for conformal therapeutic radiation dose distribution during treatment and accommodates both high-dose rate and low-dose rate treatment methods.
