SenoRx Announces Additional Patent Granted for Radiation Balloon

Monday, June 18, 2007

Aliso Viejo, CA -- SenoRx, Inc. (Nasdaq:SENO) today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company its third patent related to its recently cleared Multi-Lumen Radiation Balloon Applicator for the treatment of breast cancer. The new claims allowed in this patent strengthen the current intellectual property for certain proprietary manufacturing and product design aspects of the Radiation Balloon.

SenoRx received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market the Radiation Balloon for brachytherapy on May 23, 2007. The company expects to sell the Radiation Balloon for post-FDA clearance human clinical trials supporting marketing claims and to also host clinical education events in the second half of 2007. Full launch of the Radiation Balloon product is expected in early 2008.

SenoRx now has 46 issued United States patents primarily covering devices relating to breast biopsy, including biopsy site marking devices, excision devices and radiation balloon products.
