Sonodynamic Therapy: Revolutionary Non-Invasive Targeted Cancer Treatment
SonALAsense's sonodynamic therapy (SDT) is a new modality to treat cancer. It uses ultrasound to activate a drug that is selectively taken up by tumors. Clinical data shows that SDT kills brain tumor cells, regresses tumors, and extends survival without any safety concerns.
