Xoft's Electronic Brachytherapy Hits Milestone With 10 New Skin Cancer Installations
Date:4/29/2010

ATLANTA, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Xoft, Inc., developer of the Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy, eBx™ System, which delivers non-radioactive, electronic radiation therapy directly to cancer sites with minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue, announced 10 new installations of the Axxent eBx System for the treatment of skin cancer. The announcement was made here at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS), April 29-May 1.

The Company also announced that since the skin and surface applicator was launched less than six months ago, more than 100 skin cancer patients have been treated using the eBx technology. At many sites, the eBx systems are being used to clinically treat patients for breast, endometrial and skin cancer.

"Despite being a viable treatment option, few of our skin cancer cases were getting radiation therapy until we adopted the Xoft Electronic Brachytherapy System. With traditional external beam treatment patients often receive 30-35 fractions, with eBx, treatment can be completed in 5-10 fractions. In addition, the absence of a radioactive isotope and heavy shielding makes patients much more comfortable selecting this option," said Sachin Kamath, M.D., Medical Director Radiation Oncology at Diablo Valley Oncology in Pleasant Hill, Calif. "While we don't expect to treat all skin cancer patients with radiation therapy, when radiation is appropriate, particularly cases involving cosmetically sensitive areas, Electronic Brachytherapy is an excellent option for our patients and referring dermatologists."

In addition to skin indications, the system is also FDA cleared for surface indications, which means that many intraoperative radiation th
