ICAD Launches Post-Market Study Of Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy To Treat Early Stage Breast Cancer

iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, announced today the launch of a post-market study to assess the safety and efficacy of the company’s FDA-cleared Xoft Axxent® eBx™ System when used for single-fraction, intra-operative radiation therapy (IORT) at the time of lumpectomy for early stage breast cancer. A historical comparison will be made to the current standard of care, external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). The announcement was made during the 29 th Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference where iCAD is showcasing the Xoft System.

“While many breast surgeons and radiation oncologists have already experienced the benefits of treating early stage breast cancer patients with a single dose of radiation during lumpectomy, external beam after lumpectomy remains the current standard of care, subjecting many patients to weeks of daily radiation treatments,” said Helena Chang, MD, PhD, University of California Los Angeles and co-principal investigator for the study. “This study will enable users of the Xoft System to treat patients with suitable early stage breast cancer under a standardized IORT protocol and follow long-term patient outcomes in a controlled manner.”

The study, “A Safety and Efficacy Study of Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT) Using the Xoft Axxent eBx System at the Time of Breast Conservation Surgery for Early-Stage Breast Cancer,” is a prospective, multi-center, historical control trial. Researchers plan to enroll up to 1,000 patients at as many as 50 study sites across the U.S. and Europe. Study subjects will be followed for 10 years after treatment to determine the safety and efficacy of IORT with the Xoft System, and interim data will be collected on an annual basis. The studies will also assess cosmetic outcomes and quality of life for subjects treated with Xoft IORT.
