SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perseon Corporation (Nasdaq:PRSN) ("Perseon" or the "Company") today announced that data supporting the use of the company's cutting edge microwave ablation technology, MicroThermX, was presented at the 38th Congress of Italian Society of Oncological Surgery (SICO) in Naples, Italy from September 9 – 12, 2015. The data included two posters, which looked at the use of multiple antennas in the treatment of large liver metastases from colorectal cancer and large hepatocellular carcinoma.
"These studies are just two examples that physicians are recognizing the unique properties of MicroThermX's Synchronous Wave Alignment Technology in the treatment of tumors, especially large tumors where energy ablation was previously viewed as ineffective," said Brian Meltzer, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Vice President of Business Development. "These data reinforce MicroThermX as a safe and efficacious treatment option with low complication rates and the potential to reduce costly surgical resections of cancer."
- Ablation of Large Liver Metastases from Colorectal Cancer Using Synchronous Insertion of Multiple Microwave Antennas evaluated the use of percutaneous energy ablation for the treatment of large (> 3 cm) colorectal cancer metastases (CRCmets) of the liver. Findings of this study show that there was a low complication rate with treatments and a high rate of complete necrosis. Complete response was shown in 92 percent (11/12) of patients treated with CRCmets.
- Ablation of Large Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Using a New Multiple Antenna Microwave Device: Case Series evaluated the use of MicroThermX to achieve large volumes of necrosis in (HCC) by synchronous insertion and activation of multiple microwave antennas. Results showed that MicroThermX used in the treatment of (HCC) was safe and efficacious, with complete necrosis in 80 percent of HCC cases (8/10).
These data come at a time when Perseon continues to push for clinical results to reflect the safety and efficacy of microwave ablation, and to show the health economic advantages of using multiple, synchronized wave antennas at the time of the initial procedure.
