Endocare has launched its CRYOcare system for the treatment of metastatic liver cancer in China. The Irvine, California-based company has already set up a training centre and sold systems to select surgical centres. It has also formed a distribution agreement with Charlson International, which is based in Hong Kong. Endocare says the Chinese market is attractive because the incidence of liver cancer is extremely high compared with Western countries because of the proliferation of the hepatitis virus. Around 10% of the more than 100 million chronic carriers of the Hepatitis B virus are expected to develop primary liver cancers, says Endocare.
