Abstract :

Our previous studies suggest that nanosecond pulsed electric field (ns-PEF) is a novel minimal invasive and non-thermal ablation method that can induce apoptosis in osteosarcoma MG-63 cells in vitro. The current study investigates the local and systemic antitumor efficacy of ns-PEF on osteosarcoma in vivo with micro metastasis. Osteosarcomas were treated by ns-PEF with puncture electrode at 40Kv/cm electric field strength of 500 pulses. The survival time, tumor volume, serum alkaline phosphatase, joint capsule and lung metastasis were followed up to 6 months post ns-PEF treatment. The efficacy was compared with no-treatment control and amputation surgery. Ns-PEF reduced tumor volume compared to the control group (P<0.05), it also inhibit serum alkaline phosphatase and lung metastasis, prolonged the survival time without joint deformity or capsule rupture. Ns-PEF cannot eradicate the tumor as amputation surgery (P<0.05), but the complication and hospitalization time were lower. Local ns-PEF ablation was found to be effective in achieving longer survival and less lung metastasis without chemotherapy, radiotherapy or biological therapy. As a non-thermal ablation method, ns-PEF has potential to treat osteo-sarcoma as a palliative therapy for osteo-sarcoma patients who constricted for surgery.
