RICHLAND, Wash., May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IsoRay, Inc. (NYSE American: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications for the treatment of prostate, brain, lung, head and neck and gynecological cancers, today announced the Company’s participation at the upcoming American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting, taking place on May 18-21, 2018 in San Francisco, CA.
“The AUA is one of our biggest opportunities each year to share the latest information about brachytherapy with the urological community,” said Thomas LaVoy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IsoRay, Inc. “We believe that Cesium-131, with its unique fast energy delivery and quick patient recovery, provides urologists with a better option for their prostate cancer patients. Dr. Benoit is a long-time researcher and advocate of Cesium-131 and we’re pleased that his participation on the prostate cancer panel will ensure that this important information is correctly presented to the urological community. We are excited to give attending urologists an opportunity to revisit their brachytherapy experiences and learn about the next generation isotope, Cesium-131.”
The AUA annual meeting is a key opportunity to interact with the urological community and continue to raise awareness about brachytherapy and IsoRay’s Cesium-131 (Cesium-Blu™) treatment option for localized prostate cancer. One of the key presentations will be the Survivor Debate: Low-Intermediate Risk Prostate Cancer, which will feature noted brachytherapist Dr. Ronald Benoit, associate professor of urology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, as a panel member. Dr. Benoit is a primary author on several recent publications based on his research and experiences with Cesium-131, including papers on the long-term quality of life following treatment as well as 5-year outcomes. The inclusion of brachytherapy as an additional option for the treatment of localized prostate cancer is now a critical component of presenting the full slate of options to patients in order to assist them in determining the most appropriate treatment option for their disease.
IsoRay Medical will be exhibiting at the AUA, exhibit space #6445.
