Physiological mechanisms in hyperthermia: a review.


In experimental animal systems, hyperthermia at therapeutic temperature (43-45 degrees C) causes a profound increase in blood flow in normal tissues while it induces only meager and temporal increases in blood flow in tumors. A severe vascular occlusion and hemorrhage usually follows the increase in blood flow in the tumors at the above temperatures… (More)
