Tumor metastasis is responsible for the cause of tumor-related death. Up to date, there is no effective treatment to metastatic tumor. The cryo-thermal ablation therapy, a combinatorial variant of the thermal strategies, was found not only eradicated primary tumor without recurrence, but inhibited metastasis resulting in a long-term tumor-free survival in various aggressive tumor animal models. The whole body immunological response was enhanced, and no tumor growth was found in the cured mice with the second tumor challenge. We focus on studying the mechanism of the cryo-thermal therapy-induced strong systemic tumor-specific long-term immunologic memory. In this talk, we will introduce some progression in this study area.
Dr. Ping Liu received her B.S. and M.S. degrees at Sichuan Agricultural University (China) in 1994 nd 1997, and the Ph.D. degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China) on life sciences and biotechnology in 2005. From 1999 to 2008, she joined the School of Agriculture and the School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology at Shanghai Jiao Tong University as an assistant professor. In 2009, she became the associate professor at the School of Biomedical Engineering and Med-X Research Institute. Her research interests include cancer thermal therapy, and the mechanism of biological and immunologic effects induced by cryo-thermal therapy.
