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

erapy procedures can be performed with the Xoft source, while surgery is being performed. IORT potentially reduces the time required for radiation therapy by delivering it immediately during surgery before any remaining cancer cells have a chance to grow.

"We are in early stage program development with our IORT program utilizing the Xoft Electronic Brachytherapy technology as we strongly believe IORT can be a powerful way to treat recurrent cancers especially when you are trying to minimize the dose of radiation to an area that has been previously irradiated," said Michael Baird, M.D., Clinical Director, Radiation Oncology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. "A major advantage of the Electronic Brachytherapy System is that it does not require significant shielding, making it an ideal tool to transport to the OR for an IORT case.

"Additionally, IORT can be administered as a boost in combination with external beam radiation therapy to decrease the dose and number of treatments required. This is important, as the normal surrounding tissue may not be tolerant of the external beam radiation dose required for the radiation therapy to be effective," added Dr. Baird.

Available for treatment of early stage breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and skin cancer, the Axxent eBx System is also FDA-cleared for IORT (intra-operative radiation therapy). As a platform technology, the Axxent System is designed to deliver non-radioactive therapy directly to cancer sites with minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Utilizing a proprietary miniaturized X-ray source and robotic controller, the system can be used to deliver radiation in minimally shielded therapeutic settings. Treatment can be performed without the need for a shielded room, allowing radiation oncologists and medical personnel to be present du
