y (EAU) Congress, including ongoing results from the UK Focal Therapy Study published in Lancet Oncology (DOI:10.1016/S1470-2045(12)70121-3). In this study "Focal Therapy Targeted to the Index Lesion in Multifocal Prostate Cancer: a Prospective Development Study," UCL researchers evaluated the outcomes in men with multi-focal disease in which patients received focal HIFU therapy delivered to clinically significant cancer lesions using the Sonablate 500, developed by SonaCare Medical. Results showed that no biopsy evidence of cancer was identified in the treated regions in 60 percent of men and 83 percent were free of clinically significant cancer. The trifecta rate, which was defined as pad-free leak-free continence, erections sufficient for intercourse, and absence of clinically significant disease at 12 months, was achieved by 87 percent of men who completed the study.   

"Europe has a long history of using HIFU to treat a range of clinical conditions.  SonaCare Medical is extending the reach of HIFU for multiple urologic indications, including laparoscopic ablation of the kidney, transrectal ablation of the prostate and transurethral ablation of the bladder," said Mark Carol , M.D., Chief Development Officer for SonaCare Medical.  "We look forward to working with UCL to validate these approaches and to introduce them into the European markets."  

UCL previously reported on the use of HIFU to treat the entire half of the prostate where cancer was found. That study also showed similar reduction in side-effects and encouraging early cancer control. In the focal HIFU study, researchers wanted to evaluate whether damage to healthy tissue could be further reduced by treating only the specific cancer sites in one or both sides. Results suggest that after focal therapy men have a 9 in 10 chance of achieving excellent clinical results at 12 months with no urin
