Clinical Trial Testing Ultrasound System for Painful Bone Mets

Cancer that has spread to the bone can be excruciatingly painful.  Currently radiation treatment or opiate drugs are used to manage pain, but these are not always successful. A system that combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with ultrasound treatment to destroy bone tumors and treat pain is being evaluated in a randomized Phase III clinical trial at a number of centers in the United States, Canada, and Israel. BM004: A Pivotal Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness and Safety of ExAblate Treatment of Metastatic Bone Tumors for the Palliation of Pain in Patients Who are not Candidates for Radiation Therapy is sponsored by InSightec Ltd.
