• arclein

The USask-led research team created 3D models of cells to test which treatment protocols of electrical current?"called irreversible electroporation (IRE or NanoKnife) and high-frequency irreversible electroporation (H-FIRE)?"can destroy glioblastoma cells while minimizing the risk to surrounding tissues and blood vessels. Glioblastoma, the most aggressive and deadly form of brain cancer, affects one in 25,000 Canadians, and only six per cent of those with the cancer currently survive longer than five years after diagnosis.
