New Portable Device Provides Noninvasive Treatment That Shrinks Mesothelioma Tumors
The Optune Lua is a portable device that physicians can prescribe for patients diagnosed with unresectable malignant mesothelioma. It uses low frequency electric fields specifically designed to interrupt the division of cancer cells, and in doing so it stops tumors from growing, and in many cases makes malignant cells die. It is to be used to be used concurrently with pemetrexed and platinum-based chemotherapy.
The portable device, which looks like a backpack, does not use heat or any kind of stimulation, but targets cells that are a specific size that are most likely to be dividing. It leaves healthy cells largely undisturbed, with adverse effects limited to mild-to-moderate skin irritation. It has proven highly effective in a wide range of aggressive solid tumors.
