Washington: Scientists have come up with a promising treatment to delay the growth and spread of breast cancer tumors.
"Disrupt glycolysis and cancer cells are unable to produce enough energy to survive," he said.The researchers were then able to maximize the amount of drug delivered to a tumor by infusing the potent drug directly into the tumor—using imaging to guide them—and minimizing exposure of healthy tissue to the therapy, explained Geschwind. "The biological targeting abilities of anti-glycolytic treatment combined with an image-guided minimally invasive delivery strategy is a promising approach to reducing the growth and spread of breast cancer in patients," he emphasized."In our study, a statistically significant difference in tumor volume was observed. Our results support the continuing development of this highly innovative interventional radiology approach for the safe and effective treatment of breast cancer," he added. "Before we can test our novel treatment strategy in individuals with breast cancer, it is important to perform additional animal studies of a larger size to confirm the efficacy of the treatment and to verify that there are no toxic effects on the normal tissues," added Geschwind.The report was presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology``s 36th Annual Scientific Meeting in Chicago, Ill.ANI
