RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVE Feasibility of a new interventional procedure for the treatment of breast cancer called "magnetic thermal ablation" was examined under in vivo animal conditions. The method consists in the intratumoral application of iron oxide particles and the exposure of the breast to an alternating magnetic field, whereby the tumor is eliminated by heat. MATERIALS AND METHODS Human breast adenocarcinomas were implanted into 45 immunodeficient SCID mice. Defined magnetite particle… CONTINUE READING
