IsoRay, Inc., through its subsidiary, IsoRay Medical, Inc., is the sole producer of the Proxcelan(TM) Cesium-131 brachytherapy seed used to treat prostate and other cancers. The Proxcelan(TM) seed offers a significantly shorter half-life than the two other isotopes commonly used for brachytherapy, which results in a substantially faster delivery of therapeutic radiation, lower probability of cancer cell survival and reduction of the longevity of common brachytherapy side effects (a)(b). IsoRay is based in Richland, Washington. More information is available about IsoRay at www.isoray.com.
