US Oncology Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2007 Results
Date:2/28/2008

er of scientific articles, including several released since last year's actions by FDA and CMS, have concluded that ESAs may in certain situations increase certain side effects and mortality risk due possibly to stimulation of the growth and/or survival of cancer cells in cancer patients. It is possible that determinations by ODAC at this meeting may result in further changes to ESA labeling including either further restrictions in labeled indications for ESA use or the complete elimination of the chemotherapy-induced anemia indication. During the fourth quarter of 2007, $10.7 million of the Company's EBITDA was attributable to utilization of ESAs by our network physicians.

The Company's Senior Secured Credit Facility (the "Facility") includes covenants that are applied quarterly, based on the prior four quarters' EBITDA (as defined by the Facility), and become more restrictive over time. Based upon its current estimates, the Company believes it can maintain compliance with these restrictive covenants through December 31, 2008. As previously discussed, the Company amended the Facility during the fourth quarter of 2007 to address the current year changes in healthcare reimbursement.

The Company and US Oncology will broadcast the 2007 fourth quarter and year end financial results by conference call on Thursday, February 28, 2008 at 9:00 A.M. Central Standard Time. The archived replay of the event will be available through the news center on the Company's Web site (http://www.usoncology.com).
