MyCancerPain.org Launched as Resource for Patients with Painful Bone Metastases
Date:12/16/2008

TIRAT CARMEL, Israel, December 16 /PRNewswire/ -- InSightec Ltd. announced today that cancer patients suffering pain caused by tumors that have spread to their bones have a new online resource for information about their condition. The website, http://www.MyCancerPain.org, provides background on bone metastases, as well as detailed information about a clinical trial being conducted at eleven centers in the U.S., Canada and Israel to evaluate whether treatment with the noninvasive, ionized radiation-free ExAblate(R) Magnetic Resonance-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) system can safely and effectively alleviate this pain.

"As modern oncology treatments have helped patients live longer with their disease, growing numbers of patients are living with the side effects of late-stage cancer, including bone pain," said Andre A. Konski, MD, MBA, MA, Director of Radiation Oncology Clinical Research and Chief Medical Officer at Fox Chase Cancer Center. "As physicians, our goal is not only to treat disease, but to help improve the quality of our patients' lives. We look forward to enrolling additional patients into this study in hopes of showing that this treatment may provide safe and effective pain relief for this condition. We encourage patients with bone metastases and their families to gather information on palliative treatments, including clinical trials such as this one, and discuss their options with their physicians."

Bone pain is the most common source of pain in patients suffering from metastatic cancer. Almost all patients with metastatic prostate cancer have skeletal metastases and 90% of patients with progressive breast cancer develop these painful and debilitating lesions.

Current pain treatments consist of systemic therapy (analgesics, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and bisphosphonates) and local treatments (radiation, surgery and more
