Factors governing hyperthermia-induced pH changes in Yoshida sarcomas.

The impact of various factors modulating the acidification of tumour tissue upon localized ultrasound hyperthermia (1.7 MHz) at 44 degrees C for 60 min was investigated. Yoshida sarcomas were implanted into the hind foot dorsum of Sprague-Dawley rats. Frequency distributions of tumour tissue pH values were measured with miniaturized needle glass pH… CONTINUE READING
