Date:10/2/2013

BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (NASDAQ: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products, with an emphasis on serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced that the final analysis of the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS) MammoSite Breast Brachytherapy Registry Trial data confirms previously noted "excellent" results and compares favorably with other forms of accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) and with outcomes seen in patients treated with whole breast irradiation with similar follow-up.[i] The final analysis was published online in advance of print in the August 22, 2013 issue of the Annals of Surgical Oncology.

The seven year MammoSite Registry Trial followed over 1,400 patients who were diagnosed with early stage breast cancer and underwent breast conserving therapy, which included treatment with Hologic's MammoSite targeted radiation therapy system, between May 2002 and June 2004. By employing MammoSite Therapy, the radiation oncologist can deliver targeted radiation therapy directly to the area where cancer is most likely to recur, allowing a full course of radiation to be delivered in just five days as compared to five to seven weeks. The final analysis demonstrates low rates of local recurrence, long-term cosmesis of greater than 90% and toxicity rates of less than 10%.ii

"The American Society of Breast Surgeons MammoSite Registry Trial continues to represent one of the most pivotal studies available in defining the safety and efficacy of brachytherapy based partial breast irradiation," said Dr. Chirag Shah of Summa Health System and lead author on the paper. "With over 1,400 patients treated and follow-up exceeding five
