US Oncology Reports First Quarter 2008 Results
Date:5/7/2008

ittee also supported positions that, if adopted by FDA, would reduce ESA usage. In particular, ODAC recommended that ESA use not be indicated in patients receiving "potentially curative" treatments or in patients with metastatic breast cancer and/or cancers of the head and neck. The Committee voted against a number of other proposed restrictions and against imposing a restricted distribution system for ESAs. ODAC is an advisory committee of the FDA. While the FDA often follows the recommendations of its advisory committees, it is not required to do so. It is expected that the FDA will consider these and other recommendations and could make additional changes to the ESA label during the second quarter of 2008. In addition, affiliated physicians may already be changing their ESA use as a result of concerns raised by ODAC, and the USON network is active in reviewing evidence and adopting appropriate treatment guidelines. During the first quarter of 2008, $10.2 million of the Company's Adjusted EBITDA was attributable to utilization of ESAs by our network physicians.

Based upon continued uncertainty surrounding ESA utilization, including with respect to physician utilization practices, possible FDA action and other factors, the Company is withdrawing its previously issued EBITDA guidance and is not currently in a position to issue revised guidance for 2008. The Company and US Oncology will broadcast the 2008 first quarter financial results by conference call on Thursday, May 8, 2008 at 10:00 A.M. Central Daylight Time. The archived replay of the event will be available through the news center on the Company's Web site (http://www.usoncology.com).
