Prior studies have shown that dendritic cells exposed to tumor cells, when introduced to human subjects, generate a strong tumor specific T-cell response upon migration to regional lymph nodes[ 50 ]. June 10, First decision: EUS-guided fiducial markers placement with a gauge needle for image-guided radiation therapy in pancreatic cancer. EUS-guided celiac plexus neurolysis is now a well-accepted modality for palliation of pain in patients with pancreatic cancer. Typically placed either surgically or percutaneously, fiducial markers are radiographic markers that are placed around a tumor to serve a reference points for radiotherapy. Complications included pancreatitis and grade 3 hematological toxicity[ 34 ].

EUS-guided gold fiducial placement and migration rate. A phase I clinical trial of nedle with resectable pancreatic cancer compared 15 control patients who received standard care to 9 patients who received preoperative EUS-FNI injection of immature dendritic cells and Picibanil OKa lyophilized mixture of group A Streptococcus pyogenes with antineoplastic activity.

A single case report of EUS-guided Nd: Non-absorbable, coated braided polyester, double armed with TC cappii needle dart48″. Local delivery of antitumor agents may optimize therapeutic drug concentration while minimizing systemic toxicity.

Features one of the smallest device profiles and suture dart carrier diameters to minimize the space required within the surgical field. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided brachytherapy need,e head and neck tumours. While, to our knowledge, EUS-guided PDT has yet to be performed in humans, this procedure may be a cqppio, effective, and less invasive method of locally ablating lesions that cannot be directly accessed endoscopically.

Endoscopic ultrasound-fine needle injection for oncological therapy

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle injection of immature dendritic cells into advanced neefle cancer refractory to gemcitabine: Ann N Y Acad Sci. HIFU has been shown to result in tumor ablation and symptom palliation in several studies of patients with liver malignancies[ 29 ].

The same minimal invasiveness and precision that favor EUS as a diagnostic modality have generated interest in its therapeutic potential. PDT has been used for inoperable esophageal, gastric, and biliary malignancies[ 17 ].


Shaft diameter values are an average of fifteen 15 device measurement recordings. The injections were well tolerated without notable complications and decreased CA levels seen in two patients[ 52 ].

Local drug delivery to a human pancreatic tumor via a newly designed multiple injectable needle. Photodynamic therapy for cancer of the pancreas. Feasibility and safety of EUS-guided cryothermal ablation in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer.

The minimal invasiveness and precision of endoscopic ultrasound EUS has lead to both its widespread use as a diagnostic and staging modality for gastrointestinal and pancreaticobiliary malignancies, and to its expanding role as a therapeutic modality.

EUS or percutaneously guided intratumoral TNFerade biologic with 5-fluorouracil and radiotherapy for first-line treatment of locally advanced pancreatic cancer: However, the concept is promising.

Inducing cytokine production directly within a tumor has been proposed as a method to increase host antitumor defense and promote tumor regression.

Endoscopic ultrasonography-guided interstitial implantation of iodine seeds combined with chemotherapy in the treatment of unresectable pancreatic carcinoma: EUS-guided gold fiducial insertion for image-guided radiation therapy of pancreatic cancer: Gan To Kagaku Ryoho.
