About Medifocus, Inc.
Medifocus owns two fully developed technology platforms with comprehensive United States and international patent protection: (i) The Endo-thermotherapy Platform-a catheter-basis focused heat technology platform that utilizes natural body openings to deliver precise microwave thermotherapy to the diseased sites. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Prolieve Thermodilatation System for the treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) was developed based on the Endo-thermotherapy and is currently generating revenue; and (ii) the Adaptive Phased Array (APA) Microwave Focusing Platform, invented by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, licensed to Medifocus, directs precisely focused microwave energy at tumor center to induce shrinkage or eradication of tumors without undue harm to surrounding tissue. Medifocus' APA 1000 Breast Cancer Treatment System, developed from the APA technology platform, has received approval from the FDA and Health Canada to conduct the pivotal Phase III clinical trials. Medifocus believes that these two technology platforms can provide the design basis for the development of multiple cancer treatment systems for surface, subsurface and deep seated localized and regional cancers.
