The present animal tumour study was carried out to determine the effectiveness of low temperature hyperthermia combined with low dose rate radiation based on the cell culture studies of our laboratory and others that demonstrated a significant radiosensitization obtained by low temperature hyperthermia and low dose rate radiation. Well-oxygenated murine fibrosarcoma Meth-A tumours growing in Balb/c mice were treated with heat (41 degrees C tumour temperature) by immersion of the tumour-bearing… CONTINUE READING
