Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer, added, "This publication demonstrating Ablatherm-HIFU efficacy and great stability over a long term period represents a major milestone in the HIFU acceptance process as it further validates Ablatherm-HIFU role as a standard of care for the treatment of localized prostate cancer. This further validation will be a key element in helping EDAP market HIFU, create awareness among patients, drive adoption among the clinical community and increase recognition by healthcare authorities."About EDAP TMS SA EDAP TMS SA develops and markets Ablatherm, the most advanced and clinically proven choice for high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment of localized prostate cancer. HIFU treatment is shown to be a minimally invasive and effective treatment option with a low occurrence of side effects. Ablatherm-HIFU is generally recommended for patients with localized prostate cancer (stages T1-T2) who are not candidates for surgery or who prefer an alternative option, or for patients who failed radiotherapy treatment. Approved in Europe as a treatment for prostate cancer, Ablatherm-HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is currently undergoing evaluation in a multicenter U.S. Phase II/III clinical trial under an Investigational Device Exemption granted by the FDA, the ENLIGHT U.S. clinical study. The Company also is developing this technology for the potential treatment of certain other types of tumors. EDAP TMS SA also produces and commercializes medical equipment for treatment of urinary tract stones using extra-corporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL).
