LYON, France, Nov. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and provided an update on recent strategic and operational developments.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We continue to make significant progress on several fronts in the second half of 2014. Of most note is the continued OUS adoption of our world class HIFU technology, which led revenue from this segment of our business to more than double in the first nine months of 2014 compared to the first nine months of 2013 with a total of ten systems sold, up from two in the year-ago period."

"The third quarter was particularly exciting, as we recognized revenue from three Focal One device sales. As reported in recent communication, these 3 devices were sold and installed in recognized and leading prostate cancer centers in France and Germany. This is a clear recognition of the high value of EDAP's broad range of HIFU devices and the increasing need of a complement to surgery, to address the changing prostate cancer patient population."

Mr. Oczachowski continued, "In the U.S., we recently reached an important milestone in our ongoing regulatory efforts with the receipt of a letter from the FDA. This letter provided specific recommendations for amendments to our Ablatherm-HIFU PMA that would make the application approvable. This comprehensive guidance reflects the extensive discussions we have had with the FDA since our Advisory Panel meeting. We are excited by the growth that our HIFU business has achieved to-date and the broader growth potential in the global urology market. In addition, we remain steadfastly committed to advancing the FDA approval process, and to bringing this therapeutic option to prostate cancer patients in the U.S."

About EDAP TMS SA

EDAP TMS SA markets today Ablatherm® for high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment of localized prostate cancer. HIFU treatment is shown to be a minimally invasive and effective treatment option with a low occurrence of side effects. Ablatherm-HIFU is generally recommended for patients with localized prostate cancer (stages T1-T2) who are not candidates for surgery or who prefer an alternative option, or for patients who failed radiotherapy treatment. Ablatherm-HIFU is approved and commercialized in Europe as a treatment for prostate cancer and is currently under regulatory review in the U.S. following submission of the Pre-Market Approval Application in February 2013 after the completion of a multi-center U.S. Phase II/III clinical trial under an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) granted by the FDA. In March 2013, the Company introduced a new innovative HIFU device, the Focal One® dedicated to focal therapy of prostate cancer. Focal One® is CE marked but is not FDA approved. The Company also develops its HIFU technology for the potential treatment of certain other types of tumors. EDAP TMS SA also produces and commercializes medical equipment (the Sonolith® range) for treatment of urinary tract stones using extra-corporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL).
