SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Xoft consulting medical director, Mark Carol, MD, has received the Ira Sohn Conference Foundation Prize in Pediatric Oncology for his research focused on novel approaches for using KV X-ray-based radiation therapy to treat patients with cancer.

According to Dr. Carol, Xoft's Axxent(R) Electronic Brachytherapy System, a proprietary technology platform designed to deliver localized, non- radioactive, isotope-free radiation treatment in minimally-shielded clinical settings, was the inspiration for his work that was recognized by the Gotham Prize for Cancer Research.

"My first exposure to Xoft's internally delivered KV X-rays encouraged me to explore novel approaches to KV radiation delivery that might lead to such fundamental breakthroughs in cancer research and treatment. The work recognized by the Gotham Prize involves a technique for delivering external beam KV X-rays in such a way that they can attain therapeutic levels deeper in tissue, and selectively in cancer cells versus normal cells, than has been previously possible."

The Gotham Prize was launched in 2007 by hedge fund managers Joel Greenblatt and Robert Goldstein of private investment firm Gotham Capital, and respected medical researcher Dr. Gary Curhan of Harvard Medical School, with support from the Ira Sohn Conference Foundation and Ephraim Gildor of Axiom Investment Advisors.
