It is for STage 3 and 4 colorectal patients. This stage has metasis to other organs. Basically what it does is surrounds the tumor and cuts off the blood supply. In doing this, the tumors can't live. I have done some research and it is doing wonders for many. A few cases I found resulted in heart attacks-a very few.....It is working for MOM and I am very pleased............
