Sensus Healthcare Brings Superficial Radiation Therapy to China for Keloid Prevention and Treatment
BOCA RATON, Florida, January 8, 2018
Sensus Healthcare, Inc., a medical device company specializing in the non-invasive treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers and keloids with superficial radiation therapy (SRT), today announced that the Company has shipped three of its SRT-100™ units to Chindex Medical Limited, Sensus’ exclusive distribution partner in China, to provide patients with a highly effective treatment option for keloids. This follows the announcement of an expanded relationship between Sensus and Chindex Medical after the International Congress of Dermatologic & Aesthetic Surgery International League (DASIL) in Shanghai, China in October 2017.
“The speed at which we’ve shipped our first units since Sensus expanded the relationship reinforces our optimism about the demand for and potential of SRT-100 to reach a major segment of the Asian population, which has the highest incidence of post-surgical keloid scar formation,” said Joe Sardano, CEO, Sensus Healthcare. “We are eager to continue this important work with Chindex Medical in China in 2018 and to further expand awareness of SRT across the globe.”
The SRT-100 delivers precise, calibrated, low-dose radiation that effectively destroys basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as the non-malignant tumor cells that cause keloids. Each treatment is painless and doesn’t involve cutting, bleeding, stitching or anesthesia. There is also no risk of infection or scarring and no need for reconstructive plastic surgery. The SRT-100 received clearance from the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) for the treatment and prevention of keloids in July 2017.
