Locally advanced breast cancers are more likely to present as interval cancers: results from the I-SPY 1 TRIAL (CALGB 150007/1 50012, ACRIN
6657, InterSPORE Trial).
I don't think I am going out on a limb by saying the ACRIN
results will fall right between," she said.
We now know from the ACRIN

Announcement of favorable clinical results for virtual colonoscopy from the ACRIN
National Colonography Trial enrolled over 2500 patients at 15 sites, and it reported that VC had a 90% sensitivity for the detection of polyps >10 mm.
We look forward to working with ACRIN
in ongoing support of the modality and in securing reimbursement for screening.
We believe significant growth in this product area is still dependent on a successful outcome of the ACRIN
II trial and subsequent reimbursement for screening exams.
We believe significant growth in this product line will be driven by a positive outcome of the ACRIN
II trial and Federal approval for reimbursement for screening exams.
Such risks and uncertainties include: the ability of the Company to develop its products; the impact of Mallinckrodt's return to market on sales; continued growth in CT product sales; continued growth in VC products sales; the results of future research studies, including a positive result from the ACRIN
II trial, market acceptance and sales of RSDL, including approval of the DoD budget request and placement of a procurement order by the DoD for RSDL, market acceptance and sales of VoLumen(R); future actions by the FDA or other regulatory agencies, overall economic conditions, general market conditions, price increases of raw materials and components, foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations as well as the risk factors listed from time to time in the SEC filings of E-Z-EM, Inc.
