M. D. Anderson Cancer Center to Lead Study of Surgery vs. CyberKnife(R) Radiosurgery for Operable Lung Cancer Patients

Knife System. The results of this study may change the way lung cancer patients are treated."

Additionally, Ritsuko Komaki, M.D., professor of Radiation Oncology and program director, Thoracic Radiation Oncology and Joe Y. Chang, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of Radiation Oncology and Clinical Service Chief, Thoracic Radiation Oncology, are co-principal investigators on the study.

Sites from around the world will participate in this 1,200-patient study, with coordination and oversight by the M. D. Anderson team. The goal of the study is to compare treatment outcomes between surgery and CyberKnife radiosurgery across a broad range of geographic healthcare markets. Patient accrual is expected to begin in early 2008.

A major factor in the success of this study is selecting the most accurate method of treatment that will maximize radiation to the tumor and minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Accuray's CyberKnife System combined with the company's Synchrony(R) Respiratory Tracking System and Xsight(R) Lung Tumor Tracking System allow patients to receive a completely non-invasive treatment in three to four days through the precise delivery of high-dose radiation. While the patient lies comfortably and breathes normally, the CyberKnife System continually tracks the tumor to maximize targeting accuracy and minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Treatments are performed in an outpatient setting, without the expected complications of an invasive surgical procedure.

"Over the past five years clinicians have obtained excellent outcomes treating lung cancer with CyberKnife Radiosurgery," said Omar Dawood, M.D., MPH, vice president of Clinical Development of Accuray Incorporated. "We believe the CyberKnife System's unique ability to track tumor motion and deliver radiation accurately and non-invasively make it the ideal platform for this clinical study. We are excited about this partnership with M. D. Anderson, a leader in cancer trea
