In 2015, BTG began selling its radioembolization product TheraSphere® and will now sell key interventional oncology products DC Bead®, DC BeadM1®, and Bead Block® directly in the Canadian marketplace.

“Being a global leader in interventional medicine, we’re proud to establish a commercial presence in Canada and pleased to begin to supply BTG products directly to healthcare professionals across the country,” said Brad Pearson, director, commercial operations at BTG International Canada Inc.

About DC Bead®
The gold-standard drug-eluting bead, DC Bead® is supported by more than 10 years’ experience and 100 peer-reviewed publications reporting outcomes in over 3,500 patients with liver cancer. DC Bead® has been shown in studies to offer improved clinical and patient outcomes, including excellent tolerability versus conventional TACE, and high rates of five-year survival data.1-8

Developed and manufactured by BTG, DC Bead® received Canadian approval in 2006. DC Bead® is an embolic drug-eluting bead capable of loading and releasing chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma or HCC) and liver metastases from colorectal cancers.

About DC BeadM1®
Approved in Canada in 2011, DC BeadM1® is a subset of the smallest DC Bead®. The narrow size distribution of DC BeadM1® offers greater uniformity and concentration of bead and drug distribution in the tumor.9

About Bead Block®
Bead Block® embolic beads have a unique structure PVA hydrogel cross-linked with acrylic polymer to ensure smooth delivery and targeted, effective embolization. Bead Block® received Canadian approval in 2005.

All bead products are used in minimally invasive (non-surgical) procedures performed by an interventional radiologist.

About TheraSphere®
Manufactured in Ottawa, Canada, TheraSphere® was granted a Canadian medical device license in 2002. TheraSphere® is a well-tolerated liver cancer therapy that consists of millions of small glass microspheres containing radioactive yttrium-90. The product is injected by a physician into the artery of the patient’s liver through a catheter, which allows the treatment to be delivered directly to the tumor via blood flow.
