BSD Medical (NASDAQ: BSDM), the Salt Lake City, UT manufacturer of medical systems that deliver precision-focused radio frequency or microwave energy into diseased sites of the body, rose 18.34% Tuesday on 20 times average volume.
BSD Medical announced Tuesday that published study results demonstrate improved rates of complete pathological tumor response (no evidence of viable tumor in primary tumor and lymph nodes) in advanced rectal cancer patients from the addition of hyperthermia, delivered using the BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System. The researchers also reported that hyperthermia may provide enough reduction in tumor size (downstaging) to allow an increased rate of sphincter preservation surgery (which can allow patients to maintain normal rectal function) in a subgroup of patients with rectal tumors located lower in the gastrointestinal tract. Hyperthermia was added to standard preoperative radiochemotherapy (combined radiotherapy and chemotherapy) for 61 patients, and results were retrospectively compared to 45 patients with locally advanced rectal cancer who were treated with standard preoperative radiochemotherapy alone.
BSD Medical closed at $2.00 on Tuesday.
