Abstract

With only 2% absorption of the drugs by our bodies and with poor response rates, there is critical need for additional alternate, physical therapies for proliferation control of cancer tumors and our results indicate that electrical pulses with or without very low dosage (1/10 th or lower of normal) chemo drugs could effectively control proliferation of tumors cells. This novel technique could be used as an outpatient-based, efficient, economical treatment with minimal side effects for patients suffering from in-operable, recurrent, and chemo-resistant cancers.
