New Publications Show Noninvasive Magnetic Resonance-Guided Focused Ultrasound to be a Potentially Safe, Effective Pain-Relieving Treatment for Bone Metastases
Date:12/2/2008

tment option in reducing the pain caused by bone metastases. They treated 12 lesions in 11 patients who ranged in age from 38 to 84. After undergoing treatment, some patients experienced pain relief in as little as three days, with all experiencing relief within 14 days. By the end of the three month follow-up period all patients were virtually pain-free; four patients reported being able to resume more vigorous activities such as housework, light exercise and other outdoor activities. No adverse side effects were recorded immediately after treatment or during follow-up.

InSightec is currently enrolling patients into a FDA approved Phase 3 pivotal study to confirm these earlier results. InSightec expects to enroll 148 subjects with bone metastases who are not candidates to radiation treatments into the study at centers throughout the U.S. and around the world. Participating sites include Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Houston Methodist in Houston, Texas, SightLine Medical Center, Houston, Texas, the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Mass., the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif., the University of California, San Diego Medical Center in San Diego, Calif., Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, University Health Network in Toronto, and Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Israel. Information on the study can be viewed at either the clinical trial's official website, http://www.MyCancerPain.org, or at the National Institutes of Health's website, http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00656305?term=bone+metastases+insig htec&rank=1.
