Dr Alessandro Testori - Istituto Europeo di Oncologia, Milan, Italy

Dr Testorri speaks with ecancer at EADO 2017 about using electrochemotherapy to improve cytotoxic uptake and promote tumour cell death.

He describes how electro-stimulation around tumours results in greater uptake of bleomycin, as standard, enabling local treatment of skin cancers without the need for possibly destructive surgery.
