A new technique called electroporation uses a metal rod containing a bunch of electrodes to aid chemotherapy to penetrate cancer cells.
In pre-clinical trials on treating brain cancer with these sophisticated electrodes , the results have been impressive. The next step will be clinical testing.
Julie Gehl, one of the scientists involved in developing the technique explains: "You create small cracks in each cell membrane so that the chemotherapy can penetrate better. In fact, it can be 300 times more efficient than normal."
