US HIFU Secures $5 Million Financing From MMV Financial
Date:7/29/2009

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- US HIFU, LLC, a worldwide leader in the development, distribution and use of minimally invasive high intensity focused ultrasound technologies, has secured a $5 million financing commitment from Toronto-based MMV Financial ("MMV").

US HIFU continues to pioneer on-going cutting-edge clinical research, including immunotherapy and focal therapy, for the treatment of prostate cancer. The company looks forward to expanding plans for clinical trials that will give patients the option to pursue focal therapy, where only the cancerous part of the prostate is removed instead of the whole gland. Studies outside the U.S. have shown that focal therapy may reduce side effects and offer effective cancer control.

"We believe that HIFU is the best positioned energy source to deliver focal therapy. There is a growing trend toward less invasive treatments and a paradigm shift in how prostate cancer is being managed internationally. Currently patients must choose between either active surveillance or radical intervention which are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Focal therapy may represent an optimal hybrid between the extremes that can be viewed as therapeutic surveillance, an approach that seeks to find a balance between cancer control and quality of life considerations. We have secured financing in order to speed the maturation of focal therapy; and we look forward to announcing the start of clinical trials evaluating focal therapy to be conducted at some of the nation's top academic centers in the coming weeks," said Steve Puckett, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, US HIFU. "It is an exciting time for HIFU as a technology and this financing allows us to dedicate even more resources to expanding our clinical trials research program which is dedicated to improving the treatment of patients with prostate cancer."
