Date:5/7/2014

Leesburg, VA, May 6, 2014A small group of patients with locally advanced unresectable pancreatic carcinoma suffered no major ill effectspancreatitis or fistula formationafter undergoing percutaneous CT-guided irreversible electroporation (IRE)a nonthermal ablation technology that is safe near vascular and ductal structuresas a therapy.

"Our findings exceeded our expectations," said Maria Paola Belfiore, a researcher at the Institute of Radiology, Second University of Naples. "In fact, three patients were downstaged, and so had a greater life expectancy. This is a great new promise for inoperable pancreatic tumors."

The ablation procedure was successful in 100 percent of the patients. These early results represent a good alternative to intraoperative IRE ablation, and offer a safe and feasible primary local treatment for locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
