This is just starting. I'm waiting to see if they(clsn) submit an abstract for the Sociey of Thermal Medicine's 30th annual meeting. The deadline is 12/5/12.
Two of the three keynote speakers at this years meeting are very familiar with Celsion.
Who are they?
1. “His achievements include All-American in Lacrosse, multiple patents in the field, and pioneering several technologies from the bench to the patient, now in widespread use, including heat deployed chemotherapy combined with thermal ablation for liver cancer, “medical GPS” electromagnetic (EM) tracking for needle-based procedures like biopsy and thermal ablation, and smart needles and devices for minimally invasive, multi-modality, image-guided procedures.
He postulated and implemented bench to bedside Phase I trials of radiofrequency ablation for liver tumors, augmented with heat deployed chemotherapy (heat sensitive liposomal doxorubicin), which is currently post Phase III for hepatocellular carcinoma.
He was among the first physicians to perform radiofrequency ablation for kidney and liver tumors in humans in the mid-1990's….”
2. An internationally renowned researcher in MR-guided focused ultrasound technology including innovative microbubble technology. He is a senior scientist and imaging director - cancer program at major Research Institute while also being a full Professor within the Department of Medical Biophysics. He also holds a Tier 1 Research Chair in Imaging Systems and Image-Guided Therapy
