Leading Academic Institutions Collaborate on 800-Patient Study of Effectiveness of Cryoablation for Men With Recurrent Prostate Cancer
Date:6/6/2008

data we need to evaluate and confirm the treatment as an important and proven option for these men."

"We believe that this study will demonstrate what more and more urologists already know -- that cryoablation can give these patients a great second chance," said Craig T. Davenport, Endocare Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This should be very welcome news to the thousands of patients each year who have undergone radiation therapy only to see their cancer come back. These so-called 'salvage' patients have very few options other than hormone therapy. The study will be used to determine the best methods for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of these salvage patients. We look forward to following this study because the most modern and advanced cryoablation technology available will be used. While previous salvage studies show good results, we expect these outcomes to be even better."

Cryoablation is a procedure during which the physician freezes and destroys the cancerous tumors in the prostate gland. Endocare developed and manufactures the industry's leading cryoablation device, the Endocare Cryocare(R) System. Patients who undergo cryoablation often are released within 24 hours of the procedure and are able to return to normal activity within a few days.

The SCORE Study is the largest prospective trial ever undertaken in cryoablation. Investigators will collect uniform, HIPAA compliant, anonymous patient data for collaborative analysis and publication. Data components, which are based on an Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved protocol, include diagnostics, cryoablation procedure, clinical follow-up and complications.

A national patient educational and awareness campaign is underway to find patients with recurrent prostate cancer following radiation. A number of additional academic and community centers are in the process of joining the study. Additional information can be found at '/>"/>
