IsoRayInc. (NYSE MKT:ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications, today announced the publication of the first major peer reviewed study showing improved results usingIsoRay'sCesium-131 seeds in the treatment of gynecologic cancer.

IsoRayCEO Dwight Babcock commented, "We are very excited to have our Cesium-131 isotope seeds chosen for use in the treatment of gynecologic cancers. We believe our marketing is most successful by teaming up with medical industry thought leaders as they seek better solutions and outcomes for their patients. As we continue to develop our product offerings internally with support from industry leaders, our message is clear and the medical community is becoming increasingly aware of the innovative alternative our Cesium-131 products offer to cancer patients."

Dr. Marcus Randall MD, FACR of Markey Cancer Center,Universityof Kentucky, a co-author of the publication, stated: "Cesium-131 has totally replaced Au-198 as the isotope of choice for permanent gynecologic implants, and we are very happy with the results and the radiation safety profile".

Babcock said, "Published studies are the final step to commercialization as leaders in the medical arena recognize the important need for a new powerful weapon in the battle against cancer. As with this latest publication on gynecological cancers, I believe Cesium-131 is now a proven solution that can meet patient needs."

IsoRay'svarious products, including Cesium-131 seeds, sutured seeds, stranded mesh and theGliaSiteradiation therapy system, give physicians the ability to directly place a specified dosage of radiation in areas where cancer is most likely to remain after completion of a tumor removal or by placing seeds within the prostate. The ability to precisely place a specified dose of radiation means there is less likelihood for damage to occur to healthy surrounding tissue compared to other alternative treatments.IsoRay'scancer fighting products diminish the ability of the tumor to recur, resulting in important benefits for patients in longevity as well as quality of life.
