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

novative treatment options available.  Reinforced by several recent studies demonstrating the clinical benefits of IORT, we strongly believe that the Xoft Electronic Brachytherapy System gives us the ability to provide positive clinical results in the safe and patient friendly environment patients have come to know from Hoag."  

Available for treatment of early stage breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and skin cancer, the Axxent eBx System is also FDA cleared for use in the treatment of surface cancers or conditions where radiation therapy is indicated, including IORT (intraoperative radiation therapy). As a platform technology, the Axxent System is designed to deliver non-radioactive therapy directly to cancer sites with minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Utilizing a proprietary miniaturized X-ray source and robotic controller, treatment can be performed in minimally shielded therapeutic settings allowing the radiation oncologist and other medical personnel to be present during treatment delivery and minimizing patient anxiety.

"We are proud to work with Dr Silverstein and the team at Hoag Breast Care Center to offer this breakthrough treatment for breast cancer that delivers definitive therapy in a matter of minutes rather than weeks or even days," said Michael Klein, Xoft CEO and president. "We are encouraged that the clinical value of isotope-free electronic treatment for IORT and accelerated brachytherapy applications continues to be reinforced by multiple study publications, including the recent TARGIT study. We strongly believe that utilization of Electronic Brachytherapy will continue to increase not only on their ability to improve patient care but also as a result of the convenient approach to treatment."
