American Society of Breast Surgeons Study

Represents Largest Patient Population to Date

BEDFORD, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) a diversified medical technologies company specializing in imaging systems, diagnostics, and interventional devices dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced the publication of a study evaluating the Hologic MammoSite(R) Radiation Therapy System (RTS), one-, two- and three-years after treatment. The study by Frank A. Vicini, M.D., and others, published in the February 15, 2008, issue of Cancer(1), the peer- reviewed professional journal of the American Cancer Society, reports on treatment efficacy, cosmetic results and toxicities of patients enrolled in the American Society of Breast Surgeons MammoSite Breast Brachytherapy Registry Trial.

The American Society of Breast Surgeons MammoSite Registry(2) includes a total of 1,440 patients with early stage breast cancer, who were undergoing breast-conserving therapy and were treated with MammoSite RTS between May 2002 and July 2004. Of the total, 87 percent of the patients had invasive breast cancer and 13 percent had been diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).

The authors presented a subset analysis of the first 400 cases enrolled in the study with a median follow-up of 37.5 months. The three-year actuarial rate of local or regional recurrence was less than 2 percent in this group. The percentage of breasts with good and/or excellent cosmetic results was 93 percent at 36 months. The authors also reported a three-year actuarial local control rate of 100 percent in the first 48 patients enrolled with DCIS.
