Executive Summary

Hologic: Company expects to launch its new radiation therapy system by the end of the year, having secured FDA clearance Aug. 27, Hologic announced Sept. 1. MammoSite ML is a multi-lumen version of the firm's original, single-lumen MammoSite system, cleared in 2002. The accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) devices provide targeted breast cancer radiation therapy directly to the area where cancer is most likely to recur by inflating a balloon catheter containing radioactive material into the surgical cavity after the tumor is removed. The multi-lumen model allows oncologists to shift the radiation dose to the areas within the cavity that need it most, the firm explains. Hologic obtained the MammoSite technology when it bought Cytyc for $6.2 billion in 2007 (1"The Gray Sheet" May 28, 2007)
