IsoRay Announces New Russian and Peruvian International Distributor Agreements for the Sale of IsoRay's Full Line of Products

RICHLAND, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- IsoRay, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ISR) (http://www.isoray.com/), announced today that it has entered into two (2) international distribution agreements: the first with MedikorPharma-Ural LLC for the Russian market and the other with Surgicorp SRL for the Peruvian market. IsoRay is a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications for brain cancer, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, prostate cancer and gynecologic ("gyn") cancer.

MedikorPharma and Surgicorp SRL both now have the right to distribute all of IsoRay's products within their countries. Together with IsoRay's other international distributors, MedikorPharma and Surgicorp SRL are expected to support IsoRay's long term goals by obtaining increased recognition in the world marketplace for Cesium-131. IsoRay's Cesium-131 products utilize the uniqueness of IsoRay's Cesium-131 isotope to attack cancers in the prostate and other body sites, such as brain cancer, head and neck cancer, lung cancer and gynecological cancers, while providing patients with a better quality of life than many competing treatments. IsoRay's continued success story will be accelerated as more physicians and surgeons in the US and internationally are made aware of the power of Cesium-131 through published studies reporting positive patient outcomes from treatment with IsoRay products.

IsoRay Chairman and CEO Dwight Babcock commented, "We are very optimistic about achieving growth in adoption of our growing array of new products and look to the international market to contribute in the future as IsoRay's products receive the additional foreign regulatory approvals and licenses needed for the sale of our products in additional countries. All of our products, except our just announced liquid Cesium-131 (Cesitrex®) for use in our GliaSite® Radiation Therapy System, currently carry the CE Mark, making them eligible to be sold in 31 European nations. Physicians and institutions throughout the US are continuing to report outstanding results in the use of our Cesium-131 seeds for brain cancer, head and neck cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and gynecological cancers. Given this growing acceptance and interest, we remain committed to our strategic national and international marketing objectives and believe this will contribute to our long term success."

The Company is actively bringing new brachytherapy applications to market, providing new solutions to leading physicians throughout the world. The Company's continued investment in research and development focusing on Cesium-131's efficacy for treatment of various cancers located throughout the body is expected to have a direct impact on its overall growth with an expanding array of non-prostate cancer treatments. In addition, the recent reorganization and increase in the size and quality of IsoRay's sales organization in the US market has created the means to contact more facilities than ever before with the Company's new and novel treatment alternatives.
