CLS announces poster presentation, describing preclinical work, at SITC 2017, on 8-12 November, in the US

Clinical Laserthermia Systems (CLS) (publ) has received acceptance for its abstract for a poster presentation at this year’s “Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer” (SITC) conference in Maryland, USA. The abstract is titled “Anti-tumor effects and immunological response following immune stimulating interstitial laser thermotherapy” and describes the setup and initial experiences from the preclinical work that CLS has carried out during this year.

In parallel with CLS’ commercialization of the TRANBERG®|Thermal Therapy System, the company has also worked to further develop and adjust the imILT® method with the aim to carry out preclinical studies using mouse models. Parts of this work will be presented in a poster format during SITC 2017, taking place on 8-12 November, at the National Harbor, Maryland, USA.

“The preclinical work is important to us since our clinical studies, as well as the ongoing development seen in research in our field, require new approaches be taken and new questions to be answered”, said Jakob Axelsson, Head of Research at CLS.

CLS develops and markets the TRANBERG®|Thermal Therapy System, as well as disposable materials and methods, for heat-induced immunotherapy for safe and gentle treatment of cancerous tumors.
