  • Aims and background Hyperthermia, the heating of tumors to 41.5–43 °C, could be today considered the fourth pillar of the treatment of cancer. Employed for 20 years in Europe, the USA and Asia, hyperthermia, used in addition to radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery, increases both local control and overall survival, restores the chance of the surgery for inoperable tumors and allows a new low-dosage treatment of relapsed cancers previously treated with high radiotherapy dosage without… CONTINUE READING
