The purpose of the SENNEX® EPT (ElectroPorationTherapy) and ECT (ElectroChemoTherapy) system is to treat cutaneous and subcutaneous tumours and metastases in cases where palliative treatment is indicated. Depending on their size, the tumours are treated from the skin surface using electric microseconds-impulses applied by minimally invasive needle electrodes.
The EPT/ECT procedure is combined with a local chemotherapy.
SENNEX® system is approved and certified in terms of the European regulation for medical devices.
