“PIPAC is a new way of delivering chemotherapy to the abdomen, Lee says. This approach is not used following surgery, Lee notes, so PIPAC can be used in conjunction with systemic chemotherapy. While PIPAC is more widely used in Europe and Asia, he adds. PIPAC allows him to better visualize the treatment because with each session, surgeons can gauge how the cancer is responding to therapy in real-time and it’s relatively safe due to the way that it’s delivered. Although there are benefits to both approaches, Lee thinks that PIPAC will become increasingly more prevalent. Many centers in the United States are interested in looking into this modality, he adds.”
There’s a clinical trial going on:https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03868228
