Over 3,000 Skin Cancer Patients Treated with the TOPEX System.............
Date:5/11/2009

DANBURY, Conn., May 11 /PR Newswire/ -- May is National Skin Cancer Awareness month. TOPEX, Inc. located in Danbury, CT is helping to fight this disease with a low energy or superficial x-ray therapy system designed specifically to treat skin cancer as an alternative to surgery. Since first introduced in May 2007, over 3,000 patients were treated with the TOPEX system. As a standard of care, the TOPEX system provides an alternative to surgery for treating basal and squamous cell carcinomas, especially for those skin conditions requiring difficult or extensive surgery in sensitive head and neck regions such as the fold in the nose, eyelids, lips, corners of the mouth and the lining of the ear that would otherwise lead to a poor cosmetic outcome. The TOPEX treatment procedure does not require the use of anesthetics and eliminates the need for skin grafting when surgery could result in a less than desirable cosmetic outcome. This procedure is painless and benefits those patients who may have a fear of surgery and needles, patients who have contraindications for reconstructive surgery that are taking blood thinning medications and for those that cannot tolerate general anesthesia.

TOPEX has a number of systems that treat skin cancer patients at Radiation Oncology Departments, Medical Universities and Dermatology Practices in the United States, Europe, South Africa and Australia.

Over 2.5M new skin cancer cases are diagnosed annually worldwide. This is increasing at a rate of 4% per year. Increased exposure to the sun without skin protection and a decreasing natural ozone layer are cited as the chief causes of this increase - a problem estimated at over $3B in annual medical t
