The British Journal of Dermatology has published a feasibility study of microwave therapy for precancerous actinic keratosis (AK) using Emblation's swift system. The clinicial trial was grant funded by Innovate UK, and was carried out by researchers at the University of Dundee.

The results of this study conclude that a significantly higher propotion of treated AK areas responded than untreated (90% vs 15%; P < 0.001). Thin AKs were more responsive than thick AKs. The site did not affect efficacy. Pain was severe, but brief (80% reported pain lasting 'a few seconds only'). Adverse events were minimal. All participants who would choose microwave therapy over their current treatment cited the shorter discomfort period.
