BR-002: A Multicenter “Ablate and Resect” Study of Novilase Interstitial Laser Therapy for the Ablation of Small Breast Cancers
(Enrollment Complete – April 2015)
Purpose of the BR-002 Novilase Clinical Trial
The primary purpose of the BR-002 Trial is to evaluate the rate of complete tumor ablation (destruction by laser) of breast cancers that are less than or equal to 2 centimeters. Tumor ablation results will be compared using post-laser ablation imaging (e.g., MRI, ultrasound and mammography) and post-excision (e.g., lumpectomy) pathology for detecting any residual tumor.
“The goal is to evaluate whether minimally invasive laser ablation of early-stage breast cancer can be a treatment alternative to traditional surgical lumpectomy. With laser therapy, this may be performed more conveniently, with less pain and with less deformity. I am proud to offer this as an option for patients and continuing our tradition of providing the latest technologies and treatments,” said Dr. Barbara Schwartzberg, Principal Investigator and Chair of Cancer Services at Rose Medical Center in Denver, CO.
