;outcomes may be further improved with a better physical separation between the prostate and the rectum during treatment. (3)

Amar Sawhney, chief executive officer and director of Augmenix said, "The SpaceOAR System is designed to provide a unique and cost effective way to manage potential reduction in injury to organs at risk, such as the rectum, during radiotherapy of the prostate.  Better targeting may enable radiation oncologists to deliver more radiation per treatment, thus decreasing the total number of treatments required (hypofractionation), resulting in significant healthcare savings. We are excited to have Varian, with its significant market leading expertise in radiation therapies, appreciate this potential for improvement of cancer care, and help us bring these advances to market."

"By enabling urologists and radiation oncologists to shift anatomy into optimal positions prior to irradiation, the SpaceOAR System represents a therapeutic paradigm shift that could potentially lead to improved radiotherapy outcomes, including lower complication rates and higher tumor control rates," said John Adler, M.D., Varian's chief of new clinical applications.  "Investing in Augmenix fits perfectly with our commitment to provide physicians with novel technologies that offer cancer patients both highly efficacious and cost-effective treatments."
