Cryoablation Combined with Immunotherapy:

Cryoablation involves placing a needle directly into a tumor under image guidance.  The tumor is then frozen and killed directly.  This process can stimulate an anti-cancer immune response, but alone is usually not enough to eradicate advanced disease.  Now with the advent of the immune checkpoint inhibitors (Yervoy, Opdivo and Keytruda) these drugs can be injected right at the ablation site, which creates a whole body (systemic) anti-cancer immune response, much like a tumor vaccine.  This allows the immune system to not only attack the tumor directly treated, but also tumors that are elsewhere in the body.  This therapy not only treats locally invasive cancer, but also advanced cancer (Stage 4 disease).

Types of Cancers Treated:

  • Lung (local and advanced)
  • Liver (local and advanced)
  • Breast (local and advanced)
  • Colon (advanced)
  • Ovarian (advanced)
  • Uterine and Cervical (advanced)
  • Melanoma
  • Sarcoma
  • Head and neck
  • Lymphoma (advanced and failed traditional treatment)

Advanced Cancer Treatment

For advanced cancers we may use treatments of Cryoablation, Microwave and Radiofrequency ablation. They are minimally invasive image guided treatments for cancer. These involve placing a needle into the cancer under image guidance, then destroying the tumor by heating or freezing.

breast cancer treatment

It has been shown that ablation has the potential to generate an anti-tumor immune response. However, this anti-tumor immune response is usually not enough to create a “whole body” anti-cancer immune response. Ablation, when done with the appropriate technique and medication regimen, can enhance the anti-cancer immune response.

Immunotherapy Treatment

Immunotherapy is the use of medications to stimulate the patient’s own immune system to attack cancer. There has been great excitement with the development of immune checkpoint inhibitors, such as Yervoy, Opdivo and Keytruda.
