Immunological response to renal cryoablation in an in vivo orthotopic renal cell carcinoma murine model.

PURPOSE The immunological consequences of cryoablation for renal cell carcinoma are largely unknown. Cryoablation is an attractive therapeutic option for tumors due to its minimally invasive nature. Cryoablation is also potentially immunogenic. We describe the development of an animal model to deliver in vivo renal cryotherapy to orthotopically implanted… CONTINUE READING
