IntraOp Medical Receives Order for First Mobetron(R) in China

IntraOp Secures 19th Mobetron Order Worldwide

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(HSMN NewsFeed)--July 26, 2006--IntraOp Medical Corporation (OTCBB: IOPM ) has received an order for its first Mobetron System in China. It will be the fourth Mobetron acquired by a hospital in Asia, and the 19th worldwide.

The Mobetron is an FDA-approved, easily transportable electron-beam instrument designed for intraoperative electron radiation therapy (IOERT), or the direct application of radiation to a tumor while a patient is undergoing cancer surgery. This first Chinese order will be installed at Beijing Tumor Hospital, China's premier cancer research and treatment center, often called the "National Cancer Institute of China," and a part of Beijing University Medical Center. In addition to treating patients, the hospital will use the Mobetron to train other Chinese practitioners in the use of IOERT and develop and expand the use of IOERT throughout China.

"Working with Beijing Tumor Hospital is a noteworthy opportunity for IntraOp Medical, the Mobetron and IOERT in general. Not only does this institution influence other cancer programs in China, it also has outstanding clinical research facilities," said Dr. Donald Goer, President and Chief Executive Officer of IntraOp. "We are expecting the Tumor Hospital to take an active role in coordinating IOERT studies throughout the Far East."

Dr. Peter Yu, IntraOp's Director of Far East Operations, said: "We have been working diligently to place a Mobetron at this prestigious center. Many other cancer hospitals in China will be watching to see how well the Mobetron integrates with Beijing Tumor Hospital's cancer program, and we expect other hospitals to follow its lead. From my discussions with the Tumor Hospital staff, I have learned that, in addition to the treatment of advanced and recurrent disease, which is typical of centers with IOERT capability, this hospital will use the Mobetron to treat lung cancer and early-stage breast cancer as well."
