C4 Imaging Signs SIRIUS™ MRI MARKER Loading Services Agreement with AnazaoHealth Corporation

HOUSTON, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- C4 Imaging LLC is pleased to announce the signing of a loading services agreement for it's first product, the Sirius™ MRI Marker, with AnazaoHealth Corporation. The novel positive-signal, MRI Marker [1] will be used following treatment of prostate cancer with brachytherapy to facilitate seed localization within the prostate, utilizing a single post-implant Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging procedure.

C4 Imaging will partner with Florida-based AnazaoHealth Corporation, a leading provider of patient-specific prescription-loaded brachytherapy products for treating prostate cancer. Under the agreement AnazaoHealth will load the Sirius™ MRI Marker alongside seeds into brachytherapy strands and needles according a physician prescription tailored to each individual patient. "AnazaoHealth has a long-standing reputation for quality and service to the prescription-loaded prostate brachytherapy market," said Andrew Bright, President and CEO of C4 Imaging. "We are delighted to partner with them, allowing broad access to our Sirius™ MRI Marker for prostate brachytherapy physicians and seed vendors alike."

Brachytherapy, or radioactive seed implantation, is a standard option for the curative treatment of prostate cancer. Brachytherapy involves implanting around 100 seeds into the prostate. Its popularity has increased due to its effectiveness, convenience, relatively low incidence of erectile dysfunction, and minimal invasiveness [2]. Radiation released from the seeds penetrates the surrounding prostate tissue at a limited distance, with most of the radiation concentrated within the prostate. Outcomes after brachytherapy can be excellent but depend greatly on the quality of the implant: 8-year prostate-specific antigen (PSA) relapse-free survival rates of 93% for high-quality implants vs. 76% for low-quality ones have been reported [3].

"While C4 Imaging is a new entrant into the US prostate brachytherapy market the company's management team is highly experienced in this area", said Chris A Arnette, President and Chief Operating Officer of AnazaoHealth Corporation. "We are excited to partner with them as they introduce the Sirius™ MRI Marker. Sirius™ has the potential to revolutionize prostate brachytherapy; with improved MRI based post-implant imaging leading to further increases in the quality of this highly-effective and cost-effective treatment option."
