Canady Helios Cold Plasma Scalpel Treatment at the Surgical Margin and Macroscopic Tumor Sites

2020-02-17 18:20:57 | BioPortfolio


The study designed is to evaluate the safety of Canady Helios™ Cold Plasma Scalpel (CHCPS) in patients with solid tumors with carcinomatosis scheduled to undergo surgical resection for cytoreduction. Patients with stage 4 resectable tumors as decided by a multidisciplinary disease management team may be included if the metastatic disease is non-synchronous (e.g. recurrent colorectal carcinoma with hepatic metastasis amenable for surgical resection).. Plasma is an ionized gas typically generated in high-temperature laboratory conditions. Plasma coagulators are currently used routinely as surgical tools with multiple applications that create temperatures between 37° C to 43°C and cause thermal injury. Earlier studies demonstrated the non-aggressive nature of cold plasma. As evidence accumulates, it is becoming clear that low-temperature cold plasma has an increasing role in biomedical applications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ionized gases, consisting of free electrons and ionized atoms or molecules which collectively behave differently than gas, solid, or liquid. Plasma gases are used in biomedical fields in surface modification; biological decontamination; dentistry (e.g., PLASMA ARC DENTAL CURING LIGHTS); and in other treatments (e.g., ARGON PLASMA COAGULATION).

Recurrent localized itching, swelling and painful erythema on the fingers, toes or ears, produced by exposure to cold. It is also called pernio.

A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.

Presence of fluid in the PLEURAL CAVITY as a complication of malignant disease. Malignant pleural effusions often contain actual malignant cells.
