"The ability to detect DCIS intraoperatively is significant since DCIS is considered a very challenging target," said Bill Densel, who was named Dune's Chief Executive Officer in April, 2010, after serving as Chief Business Officer since January, 2009.  "These data support earlier published findings which reported MarginProbe's capability to detect all types of malignancy found in the breast and to positively impact reoperation rates."

In BCS, there exists tremendous need for an intraoperative technology to help surgeons achieve the removal of the complete tumor with a rim of healthy tissue, known as the margin, preferably in one surgical session.  According to the medical literature, between 20 percent and 40 percent of BCS patients require a second surgery because clear margins were not achieved during the initial procedure.  Earlier this year, Dune completed the MarginProbe pivotal trial to support U.S. market approval.  

"Dune's technology creates a novel platform that can probe into the internal structures and properties of human tissues and provide information in real-time," said Densel.  "In addition to pursuing MarginProbe approval in the U.S. and commercial roll out in target markets, Dune will continue to advance ongoing development of additional applications for real-time cancer detection in both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures."
