    Sirtex Announces New Medical Director for U.S. Operations

    About Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) using SIR-Spheres microspheres

    Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) is a novel treatment for inoperable liver cancer that delivers high doses of radiation directly to the site of tumors. In a minimally-invasive treatment, millions of radioactive SIR-Spheres microspheres are infused via a catheter into the liver where they selectively target liver tumors with a dose of internal radiation up to 40 times higher than conventional radiotherapy, while sparing healthy tissue.

    Clinical trials have confirmed that liver cancer patients treated with SIR-Spheres microspheres have response rates higher than with other forms of treatment, resulting in increased life expectancy, greater periods without tumor activity, and improved quality of life. SIRT has been found to shrink liver tumors more than chemotherapy alone.

    SIRT using SIR-Spheres microspheres is approved for use in Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America (FDA approval), European Union (CE Mark), Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Israel, and India. SIRT is available in 140 treatment centers around the world, and more than 6500 patients have been treated to date.

    Approximately 90 physicians in the United States use Sirtex's SIR-Spheres microspheres in more than 86 medical centers. For more information, visit
