If the ONCS technology is effective in one of the toughest cancers...melanoma. I would think the flood gates would fly wide open for going after other solid tumor types (off label use). One step at a time, however, I am sure this will happen if we concur the melanoma tumor.
I agree that the obvious advantage of electroporation is it is applied directly to the cancer through the skin, but this then becomes a disadvantage for treating cancers within the body. I suppose through a surgical incision electroporation on an internal tumor could be done, but obviously at a lot more cost and discomfort to the patient. However if electroporation + IL12 becomes a successful treatment for surface tumors there would not be a reason not to try them in such a way for internal ones. ONC has made no metion of this as I suspect they feel it is premature to speculate about it.
I don't know about that. I guess for approved methods (I'm not a doctor), but August 2012 my grandmother was part of a clinical trial for a pill that essentially taught the immune system to fight the cancer (melanoma). The problem was that it had so many side effects she ended up passing from them. I remember it worked for a little while, though.
Anyway, that's just another method I thought of, but it obv wasn't approved when I heard about it, and I really didn't follow up on it afterwards. Wish I did.
I really, really hope ONCS's method works, because of all the good it will bring with it, other than financially.
Please keep your suggestions within your "pay grade", which is at best "IGNORANT" when it comes to determining "HOW TO USE THIS ONCS METHOD!!! ALLOW THE PROPERLY EDUCATED EXPERTS TO DETERMINE THIS!!!!
"BULL". you are completely lost in the science of this !!! go lay down in your cage, you are out of bounds!!!
