Electrical pulse treatment pokes holes in hard-to-treat tumors
Date:4/14/2013

NEW ORLEANS, April 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- 

Highlights

  • Minimally invasive electrical pulse treatment pokes microscopic holes in cancerous tumors without hurting healthy nearby tissue, research suggests.
  • IRE appears to be beneficial in treating pancreatic, liver, lung and other challenging cancers, according to a study being presented at SIR 2013.
  • While surgery and other treatments may damage blood vessels, nerves and other important structures, IRE precisely targets tumor cells, interrupting their growth at the cellular level.
  • Interventional radiology treatments are an advance in medicine that generally replace open surgery and offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to surgery.

A new, minimally invasive treatment that tears microscopic holes in tumors without harming healthy tissue is a promising treatment for challenging cancers, suggests a preliminary study being presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology's 38th Annual Scientific Meeting in New Orleans.

"Irreversible electroporation (or IRE) is a new way to attack cancer, using microsecond electrical pulses to kill cancer at the cellular level without damaging healthy tissue nearby. It may be especially beneficial in treating liver, lung, pancreatic and other cancers that are close to blood vessels, nerves and other sensitive structures," said Constantinos T. Sofocleous , M.D., Ph.D., FSIR, lead author and  interventional radiologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, N.Y.
