Electroporation Treatment

Dr.Meera James provides Electroporation Treatment in Kochi, also known as ‘non-injectable mesotherapy’ is a process that we use to intensify the effects.

Electroporation treatment is a new approach for the treatment of head and neck cancer. Treatment that generates electrical pulses through an electrode placed in a tumor to enhance the ability of anticancer drugs. Also called EPT.

Electroporation Therapy Process

Electroporation can deliver exogenous molecules like drugs and genes into cells by pulsed electric fields through a temporary increase in cell membrane permeability. This effect is being used for the treatment of cancer by intratumoral injection of a low dosage of bleomycin. Application of pulsed electric field results in substantially higher uptake of the drug. It enhances the killing of the cancer cells than is possible by conventional methods.
