1888PressRelease – Bionix® Radiation Therapy announces partnership with Varian Medical for innovative brachytherapy applicators.
Bionix® Radiation Therapy has recently signed an agreement with Varian Medical Systems to serve as the non-exclusive distributor of brachytherapy applicators for North America. Adding to the extensive portfolio of brachytherapy solutions, Varian will market the
Esophageal Applicator (E-App™) and Anorectal Applicator (AR-1™).
The AR-1 is a first of its kind, disposable brachytherapy applicator designed specifically for the treatment of anal and rectal cancers. The unique balloons design of the AR-1 allows exophytic tumors to press closer to the source catheter, resulting in the ability to deliver a very high dose to the tumor, while sparing healthy tissue. The AR-1 solution is a simple way to treat anal or rectal tumors in a way that cannot be achieved with external beam therapy. The E-App is a first of its kind, disposable brachytherapy applicator designed specifically for the treatment of upper GI cancers. Five independently operable balloons are designed to maintain the central position of the source catheter in both straight and curved anatomy allowing for closer proximity of the target to the source, while maintaining distance for healthy tissue.
“We are thrilled to work with Varian Medical in providing disruptive brachytherapy applicators to better serve patients” says President, David Hart.
