Xoft Medical Director Recognized by Gotham Prize for Cancer Research
Date:4/3/2008

ought a new way to accelerate progress in cancer research. The prize winners were selected by a distinguished panel of leading scientists from institutions including Harvard, Johns Hopkins and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The Ira Sohn Research Conference Foundation -- which was founded in 1995 in honor of Ira Sohn, a successful Wall Street trader who died of cancer at the age of 29

-- is providing support for both prizes.

"We commend Mark Carol, a highly distinguished physician and innovative medical technology entrepreneur for his groundbreaking work in developing external beam KV-based radiation therapy for use in pediatric oncology," said Michael Klein, president and CEO of Xoft. "While Mark clearly explored whole new areas of executing the principles of radiation, we're proud of the fact that our Electronic Brachytherapy technology was the foundation and inspiration for his work.

"Now that Mark recently joined Xoft as a medical director, we look forward to evaluating synergies between our core technology and competency and the concepts he has been instrumental in developing, thereby identifying novel ways to apply this new approach to delivering radiation therapy."

About Electronic Brachytherapy

As a platform technology, the Electronic Brachytherapy System is designed to address a variety of oncological and non-oncological indications. Xoft is actively working to extend the use of Electronic Brachytherapy to endometrial and rectal indications, which are pending FDA clearance. Designed to deliver electronic, X-ray-based radiation treatment, the proprietary Axxent treatment platform can be used in virtually any clinical setting under the supervision of a radiation oncologist.
