Temperature was simultaneously measured by thermistors in multiple deep-body and peripheral sites in adult pigs heated continuously at 42 degrees C (rectal) and above for 4-24 h. During hyperthermia, the relations between different body temperatures were maintained and up to 1.0 degrees C separated temperature measurements at sites such as liver and bone marrow. These persistent temperature gradients must be borne in mind when evaluating tumor response in patients subjected to whole-body… CONTINUE READING
