By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Trials Week -- Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced that data from a prospective study of 230 men with low-risk prostate cancer showed 98.4 percent had local disease control 10 years after receiving stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) administered with the CyberKnife® System, and toxicity was mild. The study titled, "Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Low-Risk Prostate Cancer: A Ten-Year Analysis," was published online in the September 9, 2017 issue of Cureus (see also Accuray Incorporated).

"This is a groundbreaking study -- the first to report on the efficacy and toxicity of SBRT in the treatment of low-risk prostate cancer following 10 years of treatment. All patients participating in the study were treated with the CyberKnife System, which delivers extremely precise radiation treatments using unique, real-time image guidance and automatic motion correction. The study outcomes were excellent both in terms of disease control and tolerability, and were superior to long-term conventional intensity-modulated radiation therapy, based on results from other studies," said Alan Katz, M.D., Flushing Radiation Oncology.
