Stanford Study on CyberKnife Radiosurgery for Prostate Cancer Demonstrates 100 Percent PSA Response at 33 months
Date:3/31/2009

Prior Studies Demonstrate Frequency of Prostate Motion, Supporting Need for the CyberKnife System's Real-Time Tracking to Spare Surrounding Sensitive Structures

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today publication of the results from a prospective clinical study on CyberKnife radiosurgery for prostate cancer, which was published in the March 15, 2009 issue of the International Journal of Radiation Oncology*Biology*Physics - also known as the Red Journal.

The study, led by Christopher King, M.D. at the Stanford University School of Medicine, treated 41 low-risk prostate cancer patients using CyberKnife radiosurgery. Continual image guidance was used to verify target position throughout the procedure allowing the team to precisely deliver very high doses of radiation in five short treatments. At a median follow-up of 33 months, no patient experienced a PSA recurrence and early side effects were no worse than other prostate cancer therapies.

The authors refer to the findings as "highly encouraging," but remind readers that longer follow-up is required "to confirm durable biochemical control rates and low late toxicity profiles."

"The evidence in Dr. King's study shows a lot of promise for prostate cancer patients around the world who are looking for a shorter, less invasive and more convenient course of treatment," said Eric P. Lindquist, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Accuray. "We look forward to seeing longer term results and study outcomes examining the side effect profile of CyberKnife radiosurgery. Doctor and patient experience thu
