Induced antitumor immunity is a highly effective and long-term cure for cancer, particularly for metastatic tumors. Laser immunotherapy was developed to induce such an immunologic response. It involves intratumoral administration of a light-absorbing dye and a specially formulated immunoadjuvant, followed by noninvasive irradiation of a near-infrared laser. Treatment of DMBA-4 metastatic mammary tumors in rats with this approach has resulted in local control of primary tumors and eradication of… CONTINUE READING
