Hoag Breast Care Center Installs Xoft Electronic Brachytherapy System for IORT Program
Date:6/30/2010

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Xoft, the leading provider of FDA-cleared Electronic Brachytherapy Systems, announced today that Hoag Breast Care Center of Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach, Calif., has recently installed an Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy, eBx™ System to support the launch of its Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) program as part of its progressive, comprehensive approach to breast cancer treatment. The first hospital in Orange County to offer IORT as a definitive treatment approach, Hoag also announced that it has successfully treated its first breast cancer patient using the Axxent System that delivers isotope-free therapy directly to cancer sites with minimal exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.

IORT is a technique where a concentrated dose of radiation is delivered to a cancerous tumor site during surgery after the tumor is removed.  Because the target and normal tissues can be clearly identified during surgery, IORT may increase targeting accuracy, thereby increasing dose to the target and reducing dose to critical structures. For breast IORT, definitive treatment can be delivered in less than 20 minutes rather than the seven-week course of external beam-therapy. The shorter treatment time is generally more convenient for patients and may increase patient compliance.

"We are pleased to offer patients who meet the IORT protocol an isotope-free, electronic treatment option that supports both single-dose intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) and accelerated brachytherapy applications for the treatment of breast cancer," said Melvin Silverstein, M.D., medical director of Hoag Breast Care Center. "Hoag is dedicated to providing the most complete and in
