Solos Endoscopy Files FDA Documents for the MastaScope(TM) and OvaScope(TM) ProductsBOSTON, MA--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)--Aug 16, 2006 -- Solos Endoscopy, Inc. (Other OTC:SLSE.PK ) is pleased to announce that the Company is filing with the FDA the documents requesting immediate market clearance on the recently acquired MastaScope(TM) and OvaScope(TM) product lines. Solos currently holds FDA market clearance for its line of breast endoscopes and will add the MastaScope(TM) to that line. In addition, Solos has a wide range of additional FDA cleared endoscopes in the market and will also request clearance on the OvaScope(TM). This will allow Solos Endoscopy to begin market introduction of its line of Women's Healthcare Products without delay.
Solos' line of breast endoscopes, which now includes the MastaScope(TM), are micro endoscopes that are utilized by physicians to observe the interior of women's breast milk ducts when examining for abnormalities, in particular, nipple discharge. The majority of breast cancers originate in the milk ducts. It is anticipated that these products and process of examination will assist in the early detection of breast cancer and holds the prospect of reducing unnecessary exploratory surgeries.
The Solos OvaScope(TM) endoscope transmits light and image through fiberoptic bundles rather than rigid lens-based systems of traditional endoscopes. This process permits direct vision to assist in the early detection of ovarian cancer. The data from tests demonstrated that the OvaScope(TM) identifies patients with peritoneal disease and has value in gynecological oncology surgery.
"Solos Endoscopy's existing endoscopic products and reputation in the industry will enhance the introduction of Solos' new line of Women's Healthcare products. As we develop these and other new products further, we will have the tools to give women a better preventative medical technology for Breast and Ovarian cancer," stated Robert Segersten, President of Solos Endoscopy, Inc.
