|actual case electrochemotherapy|
|Written by Administrator|
Sarcoid in a horse (gullet area) treated only once with electrochemotherapy (ect)
Originally the sarcoid had the size and shape of a wart. Treatments during 3-4 years included XX- Terra cream, Aciclovir ointment and several surgeries but the sarcoid always grew back and became bigger.
Photo shows the condition and size before ect (5 x 4,5 cm)
During ect: injection of bleomycin and electrodes in position for ECT.
Electrochemotherapy (ECT) combines chemotherapy and electrical field pulses, which allows for the penetration of an anti-cancer drug (bleomycin in this case) at a much higher concentration than when injected directly into the tumor.
After 2 months: diminishing in size and depth (1,5 x 0,8 cm)
