A REVIEW ON POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF HYPERTHERMIA IN THE TREATMENT OF CANCER
Abstract and Figures
Hyperthermia treatment is exposing the body to supra normal temperature which is elevated to kill the cancerous cells without damaging the healthy tissues. Hyperthermia is a cancer treatment technique in which the temperature of the affected part of the body is slightly raised (41.5 to 430C / 104 -113 0F) to damage and kill cancer cells or to make cancer cells more susceptible to radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Hyperthermia could be considered as the forth pillar for the treatment of cancer in addition to radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery. Treatment strategy involving hyperthermia combined with radiotherapy/ biotherapy/ chemotherapy/ surgical intervention results in higher response rates, improved tumor control, better palliative effects and better overall survival rates.
