“Focalized Interstitial Thermotherapy in Prostate Cancer: Feasibility in Animal Model”

Laser Interstitial Thermotherapy (LITT) appears to be alternative technique for dynamic phototherapy (PDT) limited by dosimetry and real time control of intraprostatic photosensitizer concentration. The aim of this study is to describe an in vivo LITT protocol applied to prostatic adenocarcinoma.

“Narrow Band Imaging of Targeted Gold/Silica Nanoshells in Tumors”

We propose a new approach for targeting tumor with conjugated nanoparticles wherein we topically apply the conjugated GNS on the tumor xenograft models and image using narrow band imaging. We hypothesize that this approach could possibly reduce the wait time (18-22 hrs) usually associated with post-injection imaging.
