Combined effect of pH and sodium cyanate on the inhibition of tumor cell proliferation and metabolism by BCNU and hyperthermia
TLDR
The data confirmed that the inhibitory effect of sodium cyanate on cell proliferation can be enhanced by a low pH but did not provide evidence for synergistic effects in combination with BCNU or hyperthermia.

TLDR
Glucose administered before treatment of thermotolerant tumours did not change the growth rate of tumours treated with hyperthermia, BCNU, or thermochemotherapy with a low or high dose BCnU, in contrast to previous results, where glucose enhanced thermochemosensitivity of non-thermotolerants tumours.

Effect of pH and elevated temperatures on the cytotoxicity of some chemotherapeutic agents on Chinese hamster cells in vitro.
TLDR
It is shown that this dependence is greatly enhanced at 43 degrees and the cell-killing ability of four drugs in the pH range of 6.5 to 8.5 is examined, which may have some relevance in designing thermo-chemotherapeutic treatment protocols.
In vivo metabolic effects of hyperglycemia in murine radiation-induced fibrosarcoma: a 31P NMR investigation.
TLDR
The results indicate that hyperglycemia induced by intraperitoneal glucose injection is effective in lowering the tumor pH of the murine RIF-1 tumor.
Protection against thermal cell death in Chinese hamster ovary cells by glucose, galactose, or mannose.
TLDR
The addition of D-glucose, D-galactose, or D-mannose to culture medium increased survival of heated Chinese hamster ovary cells in a concentration- and time-dependent manner and may be related to the intracellular accumulation of free galactose and/or its metabolites.

TEMPERATURE RANGE AND SELECTIVE SENSITIVITY OF TUMORS TO HYPERTHERMIA: A CRITICAL REVIEW
TLDR
It is apparent that, at temperatures above 44OC, the time difference required to damage normal compared to malignant tissue becomes too short for practical purposes, and the prolonged heating times required for tumor destruction likewise make such temperatures unsuitable for therapy purposes.
