9/17/2009 9:45:14 AM

NEWNAN, Ga., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- CeloNova BioSciences, Inc. today announced that Franco Orsi, MD, PhD, will make two presentations at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) conference about "micro-bland embolization" which has demonstrated excellent clinical results in treating liver cancer. Professor Orsi and his colleagues at the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, Italy have developed a technique to cut off the blood supply inside liver tumors and liver metastases that leads to effective tumor control and reduced recurrence of tumors without the use of chemotherapy drugs.

"We are gratified that Dr. Orsi has developed this micro-bland embolization technique and demonstrated that the unique and very precise calibration of Embozene(TM) Microspheres leads to superior clinical findings in the treatment of liver cancer," said Thomas A. Gordy, President and Chief Executive Officer, CeloNova Biosciences. "Embozene(TM) Microspheres, unlike other embolics, are precisely calibrated so that larger spheres do not prevent the deepest possible penetration of tumors. Patients with liver cancer treated in this new way can experience a longer life and a better quality of life."
