Science and surgery combine in new lung cancer treatment
Award-winning duo team-up again to bring their individual expertise to new treatment for lung cancer
Lung cancer cells: the focus of the innovative work of scientist Dr Declan Soden and surgeon Mr John Hinchion
A scientist and a surgeon have become experienced inventors, joining forces to forces develop new, more effective treatments for cancer.. Their latest designs for difficult to treat lung cancer will soon go into human trials, and if it works for the patients it could also lead to a commercial success.
Their focus is on a combination therapy that brings in drug combinations and antibodies but the real key is an electrical device that opens up the tumour allowing the drugs to enter and begin damaging the cancer cells.
