Theragenics Corporation is a leader in the production and sales of implantable radiation devices ("seeds") used in thetreatment of cancer. The Company produces and sells TheraSeed(R), which is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensed device, based on the radioactive isotope palladium 103 (Pd-103). The Company received FDA clearance
to market TheraSeed(R) in 1986 and commenced commercial production and product sales in 1987. Currently, TheraSeed(R) is used primarily in the treatment of early stage prostate cancer. In the treatment, TheraSeeds(R) are implanted ("seeding") into the prostate in a one-time, minimally invasive procedure. The radiation emitted by the seeds is contained within the immediate prostate area, killing the cancerous tumor while sparing surrounding healthy cells and organs from any significant dose of radiation. TheraSeed(R) has been shown in independent clinical studies to offer success rates that are comparable to or better than conventional therapies for the treatment of prostate cancer, while
being associated with a reduced incidence of adverse side effects.
