12 Month Follow-Up Data for Isotope-Free Breast IORT Presented at ASBS Meeting
Date:4/28/2010

LAS VEGAS, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Utilization of the FDA cleared Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy, eBx™, System to deliver intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) is growing as clinical experience demonstrates the isotope-free cancer treatment platform is a patient and physician friendly alternative.  Xoft will showcase a variety of IORT oncology applications at the 11th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Breast Surgeons here, April 28-May 2, 2010.

In the study, "Twelve-Month Follow-Up Results of a Trial Utilizing Xoft Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy to Deliver Intraoperative Radiation Therapy for the Early Stage Breast Cancer," researchers enrolled 11 patients in an IRB approved IORT treatment protocol and reported oncologic, cosmetic and mammographic outcomes at one year post-IORT.  The 12-month results suggest that IORT utilizing Xoft's Electronic Brachytherapy is emerging as a novel, patient and physician friendly alternative to Whole Radiation Therapy (WBRT) as well as APBI in a selected group of patients with early breast cancer.  This work is presented in ASBS Poster #66 by Olga Ivanov, M.D., breast surgeon and medical director for Little Company of Mary's Comprehensive Breast Health Center.

"When compared to other radiation techniques, IORT is emerging as a feasible, well-tolerated alternative to post-surgical APBI and whole breast radiation therapy. In this trial, eBx was utilized for the first time to successfully deliver 20 Gy of radiation intra-operatively to 11 patients. At a mean follow-up of 12 months, overall results are extremely encouraging with excellent scores achieved in cosmesis and patient satisfaction.  While long-term follow-up will continue, no recurrences have been observed to date," said Dr. Ivanov
