Xoft Introduces Electronic Brachytherapy Cancer Treatment Platform at ESTRO Meeting
Date:9/13/2010

BARCELONA, Spain, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Xoft, Inc., the pioneer of localized, isotope-free radiation treatment delivered in minimally-shielded clinical settings, today announced the introduction of the Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy, eBx™ System to physicians and distributors in Europe.  The Axxent eBx System, which delivers treatment directly to cancer sites with minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue, treats breast, endometrial and skin cancers and Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) indications.  The announcement was made here at the 29th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO), where Xoft is exhibiting for the first time.

Xoft recently received CE Mark Approval for the Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System and treatment applicators, which permits sales and marketing of the System throughout the European Union. Originally FDA-cleared for the treatment of early stage breast cancer, the Axxent eBx Systems has received supplemental clearances for additional indications and for intraoperative use.  

"With major IORT and other radiation therapy studies having been conducted in Europe over the past several years, the market is primed for launch of Electronic Brachytherapy," said Rob Kirby, Xoft's Vice President of Business Development. "We are excited to formally introduce the Axxent System to European radiation oncologists at ESTRO, and we will also use the meeting to build strong distribution relationships to drive adoption throughout the EU."  

The clinical benefits of isotope-free, 50 kV radiation therapy continue to be substantiated by multiple publications.  The most recent include publication of four-year data from the TARGIT-A (Targeted Intraoperative Radiation Therapy) multicenter clinical trial, and recent Xoft clinical publications on APBI, endometrial cancer and breast IORT.  

As a platform technology, the Axxent
