Part 2 of the lecture about Cryo Immune Therapy given by Dr. Israel Barken from the Prostate Research and Education Foundation. Dr. Barken describes Cryo immunotherapy. The reasons why there are no consistent immune response after cryoablation are discussed. Suggestions for further research to enhance the cryoablation immune activation are brought up, based on pre clinical research on the subject. This is the second lecture to be followed up by further evidence of the cryo immunology phenomena.

Active Surveillance In Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer Called Into Question.
Dr. Israel Barken brings info about higher risk of cancer specific mortality in the intermediate prostate cancer risk group. The study presentor at the GenitoUrinary Symposium 2015 was Dr. Andrew Loblaw. The study was conducted at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center. The risk of prostate cancer-specific death at 15 years was 3.75 times higher for intermediate risk patients compared to patients with low risk patients.

Liquid Biopsy – The Role of Exosomes. Dr. Israel Barken introduces the videos published by Life Technologies from ThermoFisher Technologies. The introduction relates to the importance of using imaging and markers to define recurrent disease and monitor the progression. The ability to harvest Tumor Cells, Free Tumor Cells DNA, MicroRNA from the blood, enables Genomic Interrogation of the tumor to assess prognosis, assist in follow up and create a personalized approach to the patient.
