IsoRay, Inc. Reports First Quarter Results

13% Revenue Growth in Brain, Lung and Other Non-Prostate Cancer Cases Quarter Over Quarter

RICHLAND, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) - IsoRay, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ISR) (NYSE Amex: ISR) (http://www.isoray.com/), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications for the treatment of cancers of the brain, lung, head and neck, prostate and gynecological, announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Management has continued to promote and diversify IsoRay's treatment revenues by offering Cesium-131 as the alternative for treating recurrent and difficult cancers located throughout the body. IsoRay, like other medical device companies, is feeling the effects of the new medical device tax created by the Affordable Care Act. Despite what has been a weak prostate market for the industry as a whole, management is seeing indications that new adopters are considering Cesium-131 in the coming year. While IsoRay remains committed to the prostate market, IsoRay's primary strategic focus is to expand the use of Cesium 131 to combat cancers in numerous other body sites. We are extremely pleased with the effectiveness of Cesium-131 as a treatment solution for brain cancer, head and neck cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer and gynecological cancers while providing far better quality of life for the patient than other alternatives.

During the last quarter IsoRay added a number of outstanding new medical centers, including Johns Hopkins, Harvard Affiliate Brigham and Women's, University Medical Center of Princeton and Rutgers Medical School, that performed their first cases utilizing Cesium-131 and more are expected in the near future.  

IsoRay has continued to invest in R&D data protocols to support our future sales efforts for each new body site. In addition we have participated in more national conferences than ever before as our product portfolio expands. IsoRay Chairman and CEO Dwight Babcock commented, "Clinical evidence provided through protocols performed by major medical centers that prove successful with a significant improvement is the key to getting general adoption by community hospitals/physicians which will drive consumers to our product offerings. To this end IsoRay is totally committed. Physicians and institutions through oral presentations, posters and abstracts are reporting outstanding results in the use of Cesium-131 seeds for the treatment of cancers of the brain, head and neck, prostate, gynecological, colon and lung. Given this growing acceptance and interest, we remain committed to our strategic sales and marketing objectives, which we believe will contribute to long term growth and achieving profitability."
