We examined the influence of different shock wave application modes with a Dornier XL1 electrohydraulic lithotripter on the growth of A-Mel 3 and SSK2 tumors implanted under the dorsal skin of hamsters or mice. In a basic protocol, 500 shock waves a day on 4 consecutive days were administered at a discharge rate of 100 waves per minute and focused to the tumor center. This did not affect A-Mel 3 growth. A similar result was obtained with the basic protocol modified to 1000 shock waves a day and… CONTINUE READING
