Electrogenetherapy permits molecules to enter the cell nucleus and change its characteristics. This technique is employed in routine laboratory research, and studies are underway for its use in both human and veterinary medicine.
A combination of immunotherapy, electrogenetherapy and electrochemotherapy could offer the possibility of treating local and systemic cancers.
Studies confirming the safety of electrogenetherapy are ongoing. For example, concerning muscle tissue, no difference was detected in muscle force capacity two weeks after electrogenetherapy.
After in vitro and in vivo preliminary results, replacing chemotherapy agents with calcium intratumoral injections is proving to be a very promising treatment method.
Calcium is a ubiquitous second messenger involved in many cellular processes, including regulation of transcription, metabolism, proliferation, muscle contraction and cell death.
