Zila & Experts Testify at Congressional Hearing on Innovative Technology for Veterans; Urge Broader Use of ViziLite(R) Plus by VA for Oral Cancer Screening
Date:5/13/2009

a risk population similar to the VA population, where a reduction in the number of biopsies by approximately half would have still identified clinically significant lesions."

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, dentist and frequent dental lecturer William L. Balanoff, DDS, advised the committee that ViziLite Plus is technically a screening adjunct, like several other well-known technologies. "Cancer death rates from prostate, breast and cervical cancer did not begin to show substantive decreases until adjunctive screening technology allowed physicians to see or feel things they could not see or feel with their unaided eyes or hands. Mammograms, Pap smears and PSA tests have reduced death rates by 40%, 80% and 17% respectively," he said. Balanoff offered the congressmen a real world viewpoint: "For the past five years, the use of chemiluminescence (ViziLite) has allowed me to identify lesions that were otherwise missed during previous conventional oral examination. This device is now the standard of care, along with conventional visual examination, in my conduct of dentistry."

Mr. Bethune commented, "I am extremely pleased that Veterans' Affairs Committee chairman Bob Filner invited Zila to participate in this hearing, so that we could provide valuable information about ViziLite Plus and its importance to our Veterans."

Zila markets ViziLite Plus throughout the U.S., as well as in Puerto Rico and Canada. The product is available in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, France and Greece. The company has formed distribution agreements in other international markets, including Russia and Belarus, where product registration is in process. These markets and others in the Pacific Rim region, especially China and India, will form the bulk of the company's continued global expansion for ViziLite Plus.
