Elekta's Esteya utilized in Spanish study

Radiation oncology firm Elekta's Esteya electronic brachytherapy system is being used in a clinical study in Spain.

Hospital La Fe is nearing the conclusion of the enrollment phase of a clinical study with Esteya on the efficacy of treating skin cancer.

The enrollment of the first group of 20 patients ever to receive treatment with Esteya was completed in October. The center is using a standard treatment protocol of 36.6 Gy over six fractions, 6.1 Gy per fraction delivered twice weekly.

Researchers noted the first clinical data are expected in about two months, but physicians in the center's radiotherapy department so far are reporting that patients have tolerated the treatments well and that the system is user friendly.
