New Immunotherapy Treatment for Advanced Liver Cancer
The Society of Interventional Radiology featured research led by Dr. Steven Raman, director of Prostate MR Imaging and Interventions, on the use of a genetically modified herpes virus injected under image-guidance to treat advanced liver cancer. “Image-guided treatments have expanded the options available for patients with liver cancer from innovative approaches to biopsies to resections to chemo,” said Dr. Raman. Dr. Raman presented the data at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s Annual Scientific Meeting on March 21, 2018. Since then, the encouraging results of the study has been widely featured online, including Drug Discovery & Development Magazine, Check Orphan, Scienmag, Medical Xpress, Ecancer, HemOnc, and Targeted Oncology.
