Karmanos Couples Tumor Cryoablation with Immunotherapy

Scientists at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit today presented data at the American Association for Cancer Research’s 102nd Annual Meeting 2011 showing that when tumor cryoablation — or the freezing of tumor tissue while preserving tumor-associated antigens — is coupled with immune system modulation, the procedures have the potential to initiate or amplify tumor immunity.
