IsoRay receives approval to market cancer therapy in Canada

IsoRay, Inc., a Richland-based developer of therapies for prostate and other cancers, has announced that Health Canada’s Therapeutic Products Directorate has approved IsoRay’s Proxcelan Cs-131 brachytherapy seeds for sale throughout Canada.

In a press release, IsoRay CEO Dwight Babcock stated, “This completes another step in being able to expand the potential distribution of cesium-131 brachytherapy seeds. We initially plan to leverage the relationships of our exclusive U.S. distributor, BrachySciences, and contacts we have made with Canadian physicians who are interested in using cesium-131 to treat their patients. Through these channels we hope to begin to penetrate the Canadian brachytherapy market.”
