Precancerous Esophagus Disease Eliminated in 98.4% of Patients Treated With HALO Ablation System
Date:7/20/2008

ssor of Medicine, Mayo College of Medicine, and staff physician in the Department of Gastroenterology at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., was lead author on the published paper. Fleischer believes the study is an important step in understanding the best way to manage patients with Barrett's esophagus at the earliest phase of this disease and reports there are several on-going trials that continue adding to our knowledge of this technique.

"The findings of this prospective trial are an important advance for gastrointestinal medicine since this therapy allows us to safely and completely remove the abnormal Barrett's tissue from a patient's esophagus using a endoscopic technique," said principle investigator Charles J. Lightdale, M.D., Professor of Clinical Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center in New York. "We may learn that taking a proactive approach to eliminate the Barrett's disease may provide a significant benefit in the form of reducing risk for disease progression, patient anxiety, healthcare costs, and need for life-long surveillance."

"During this year's Digestive Disease Week 2008, there were 17 scientific presentations related to HALO ablation for Barrett's esophagus, including the interim analysis for a rigorous, randomized, sham controlled trial which demonstrated a reduction in disease progression and cancer incidence associated with this therapy," said David S. Utley, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, BARRX Medical, Inc. "This growing body of scientific evidence, combined with the completion of more than 18,000 procedures worldwide, is an important step towards our goal of reducing the incidence of esophageal cancer."
