R&D Magazine Selects Axxent(R) Miniature Brachytherapy X-ray Source as One of the 100 Most Technologically Significant Products of the Past Year

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Xoft, Inc. today announced that the Axxent(R) High Dose Rate (HDR) X-ray Source has been selected to receive an R&D 100 Award from R&D Magazine as one of the year's most technologically significant products. Established by the editors of R&D Magazine in 1963, the R&D 100 Awards are designed to recognize significant technological achievements and products that leapfrog current technology and that provide simple, elegant solutions to complex or long-standing technical or practical problems.

Over the past 45 years, the R&D 100 Awards have recognized winning products with such household names as the flashcube (1965), the automated teller machine (1973), the fax machine (1975), the liquid crystal display (1980), the Kodak Photo CD (1991), the Nicoderm antismoking patch (1992), Taxol anticancer drug (1993), and HDTV (1998).

"The Axxent miniature X-ray source is a fundamentally new way to deliver therapeutic radiation. Previously, there has been external beam radiation, generally delivered by a linear accelerator, or brachytherapy, a radioactive isotope delivering radiation internal to the body," said Paul Lovoi PhD, CTO and co-founder of Xoft. "The Axxent source can deliver internal or external radiation and, because of the lower energy, can deliver this radiation in any minimally-shielded setting. Until the Xoft miniature X-ray source, there has been no new modality of radiation treatment in over 40 years. The Xoft Axxent X-ray source is the enabling technology for many generations of increasingly more sophisticated, accurate, and accessible radiation treatment systems."

The Axxent(R) HDR X-ray source is a miniature disposable X-ray tube, 2.25 mm in diameter, that can be inserted into the body to deliver a 50 kVp therapeutic dose of radiation for cance
