Laser immunotherapy is a novel approach for the treatment of metastatic tumors. It combines a selective photothermal laser-tissue interaction for direct tumor destruction and an immunoadjuvant-directed simulation for immune responses. In experiments using a rat metastatic tumor model, laser immunotherapy resulted in the eradication of both treated primary tumors and untreated metastases at remote sites. It also induced anti-tumor resistance.
