Haim I. Bicher (2014) Relation between Compliance and Response-Recurrence Rates in Head and Neck Tumors Treated with Hyperfractionated Thermo radiotherapy. Oncothermia Journal 10:29-31

“Introduction: Hyperthermia, applied regionally, is a potent sensitizer of radiation therapy in the treatment of cancerous tumors and as such has been used as a palliation measure or more recently with curative intent. The ability of Hyperthermia to reoxygenate tumor tissue makes hypoxic tumors, such as sarcomas or glioblastomas more responsive to radiation. In a prior publication we discussed good therapeutic results (over 80% 5 years survival) using Hyperfractionated Thermoradiotherapy (HTRT) in heatable superficial tumors. In the current investigation we report on an expanded series of patients as well as performing a meta-analysis comparing HTRT with external beam radiation (EBRT) or chemoradiation. …”

Andras Szasz (2014) Deep Hyperthermia in Oncology. Oncothermia Journal 10:32-32

“Introduction: Hyperthermia was one of the very first medical approaches. It was based on various religions and had deep philosophical roots in most of the ancient cultures. It was one of the popular “kitchen medicines” having various heating methods vivid in cultural wisdom of various societies. Probably this simplicity and natural character was one of the factors why the long history was not enough for its serious medical consideration despite the actually widely applied household techniques. Oncological hyperthermia (overheating the body partly or completely) was definitely the very first oncotherapy in human medicine. The general professional skepticism blocked its application for a long time. …”

Ralph W. Moss (2014) Narrowing the Gap: the position of hyperthermia between academic and complementary oncology. Oncothermia Journal 10:33-33

“Hyperthermia developed simultaneously in the late 1970s in academic centers and various CAM cancer clinics. Each developed along parallel tracks that addressed the needs of the various constituencies. Specific companies then arose to address the needs of each community. Today, interaction between the two “camps” is sporadic at best and sometimes even hostile. Before broader cooperation can occur each side needs to understand the particular conditions that give rise to their differing approaches. …”

Hongzhong Qiu (2014) The Cultural Traits and Scientific Significance of the TCM Psychology. Oncothermia Journal 10:41-43

“With the increasingly advanced western psychology today, why should we still endeavor to study Chinese traditional medicinal psychology? That is because clinical psychology is a serving undertaking, whose effect depends on how much the psychological theories and methods stay in line with the consultative object's cultural background. Yet currently the clinical mental consultation in our country is basically copying and imitating the western psychological theories and methods. In fact, the western psychology was deeply rooted in the western history and culture, penetrated with westerners' philosophy, believes, value and life experience. …”

Horiguchi Hiroshi (2014) Toward a Radical Cure – with a Focus on Diagnosis of Patient’s Defense Level and Treatment of Replacing Electrons. Oncothermia Journal 10:44-44

“Today, we are not satisfied by achieving medical improvement, but curing the disease. However, traditional western medicine can not solve all of the medical problem, so it is important that we should find the solution to eliminate the “causes of disease”. “Self-defense capability diagnosis” is one of the method to find the causes of disease. In this paper, I am going to illustrate the mechanism and the theory of replacing electrons therapy, which will be popular in the medical field in the near future. “

Ian Dettman (2014) Does high dose injectable Vitamin C work as an oxidant or as an antioxidant or both in cancer treatment? Oncothermia Journal 10:45-45

“In vitro Vitamin C (Vit C) is known to kill cancer cells in a dose/concentration dependent way. In animals and patients high dose Vit C also is effective in cancer and higher dose/concentration is more effective. Protocols are used that get very high plasma concentration. There are many theories about why this works. One very popular theory is the pro-oxidant theory. Extracellular matrix (ECM) contains proteins which contain redox active metals like Cu or Fe. Vitamin C in the ECM reduces these protein bound metals (3+ → 2+). The metals then react with molecular oxygen to form superoxide (02). 2 superoxide molecules react to form hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). …”

Liu Jia, Zeng Yuanli (2014) The Current Situation and Development of Hyperthermia Technology in Integrated Cancer Treatment. Oncothermia Journal 10:46-46

“1. The current situation of thermal therapy and the basic assessment

    1. Description of tumor thermotherapy

The current tumor thermotherapy technology, from the beginning simple technology, has gradually formed a kind of new and high technology based on the electronic, computer, optical, electromechanical, aerospace and aviation technologies. Using devices such as microwave, radio frequency (rf), laser, ultrasound, magnetic mediated, it can carry out six big classifications for the treatment of tumor, namely deep/intracavity thermotherapy, hyperthermia, whole-body hyperthermia, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), minimally invasive thermal ablation, and magnetic induction hyperthermia. …”

Tuomas Westermarck, Marika Crohns, Faik Atroshi (2014) Cancer, Inflammation and The Role of Nutrition. Oncothermia Journal 10:48-56

“Abstract: Cancer is a disease with multiple interwoven causes and the role of diet has become a well-recognized factor in cancer incidence. It has also been described as “wounds that fail to heal”. Cancer is due to accumulation of DNA mutations that confer a growth advantage and invasive properties on clones of cells. A variety of factors have been studied in relation to cancer including, nutritional deficiencies, chemical carcinogens, physiological conditions, habits, infections, medications and socioeconomic interacting with genetic susceptibility influence the accumulation of mutations in cells. There are many different types of cancers. …”

Sergey Roussakow (2014) Hyperthermia: Thermal Trap and Athermal Solution. Oncothermia Journal 10:57-57

“Since hyperthermia has still not become an accepted treatment in oncology despite of 50 years of intensive research, the problems of hyperthermia method should be detected and analyzed.
The current hyperthermia concept is based solely on the idea of temperature effect. The lowest acceptance of this temperature-based hyperthermia is caused by the lack of its effectiveness. This is still not recognized by hyperthermia community and is masked by so-called “successful” clinical trials, which are uniformly biased. In fact, the temperature-based hyperthermia is an “error-based” treatment. The fair and unbiased estimation of temperature-based hyperthermia problems is necessary for further development of the method. …”

Nagraj Huilgol, Sapna Gupta-Dutta, CR Sridhar (2014) Hyperthermia in the management of head and neck cancer – A single institution study from India. Oncothermia Journal 10:64-67

“Abstract: The addition of hyperthermia to chemo radiation or radiation can enhance the efficacy and increase disease free and overall survival. The review is the documentation of single institution study to assess the effects of hyperthermia in conjunction with radiation alone and chemo-radiation. This data has been published earlier. The retrospective analysis of patients receiving either paclitaxel or cisplatinum along with radical radiation and weekly hyperthermia did yield spectacular survival in advanced head and neck cancer. Similarly a randomized trial to assess the role of HT with radiation therapy has shown a statistically significant improvement. …”

Alexander Herzog (2014) Hyperthermia in Cancer Treatment: Scientific Evidence in Clinical Experience. Oncothermia Journal 10:69-70

“Hyperthermia as anticancer treatment has been researched in the last decades and many mechanisms of action could be clarified. Investigations at the cellular level but also in animal experiments could show beneficial activity of the hyperthermia against cancer disease. Also in studies in human beings it could be shown that the activity of standard cancer treatments like radiation or chemotherapy could be enhanced by simultaneous hyperthermia. So in Germany the private health insurances cover the cost of hyperthermia in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation. However, in many countries hyperthermia is not used or not covered by the insurances claiming missing evidence for benefit. …”

Nodar Mitagvaria, James H Bicher (2014) Hormetic Effect of whole Body Hyperthermia (Experimental Study on Rats). Oncothermia Journal 10:72-77

“It is established that hyperthermic exposure is associated with the development of oxidative stress in cells [Finkel, Holbrook, 2000]. The oxidative stress in its essence is related to the process of massive release of free radicals. The possible mechanisms responsible for the development of this process has not been sufficiently examined, although some of them are known. For example, activation of the immune system in response to infection when for elimination of microorganisms, phagocytes begin "shoot" by Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) - a strong oxidant. It is known that the increase in resistance to oxidative stress is associated with the extension of the vitality of the body [Larsen, 1993]. In particular, it was found that low doses of oxidative stress (induced by, e.g., heat shock) slowing the aging process [Kurapti et al., 2000]. Practically here we have to deal with a phenomenon which is known as "Hormesis". This term originates from the ancient Greek and means "to bring in motion, prodding, acceleration". …”

Notter M (2014) Thermography controlled wIRA-hyperthermia & Low Dose Re-Irradiation in Recurrent Breast Cancer. Oncothermia Journal 10:78-78

Abstract: In combination with low dose radiotherapy, superficial hyperthermia offers the possibility of achieving local control in previously irradiated recurrent breast cancers. Technically, this requires the ability to control temperature distribution in the heated tissue, to adapt heat application to changes in tumor volume, to avoid overheating of normal tissues and to minimize the risk of burns. Our clinical experience of combined hyperthermia-radiotherapy treatments using thermographic monitoring and control in chest wall recurrences is presented. …”

Hegyi Gabriella, Csütörtöki Krisztina, Pfeiffenróth Anna (2014) Usage of Booster in different conditions. Oncothermia Journal 10:80-80

“Introduce: The use of the Booster in oncology can help to increase the action of both chemotherapy and other drugs. It can be used with all common cytostatics regardless whether these are administered orally, intravenously, rectally, inhaled or percutaneously. The Booster can be used for treating all types of cancer. The only limitation is the size of the electrodes. The treatment of metastases is also difficult. The Booster, which is the latest development from Oncotherm, was developed for oncology but can nevertheless also be successfully used in other medical fields. In addition to oncology, it can be used in fields such as rheumatology, sports medicine, neurology and neurosurgery, dermatology and analgesic therapy. …”

Oliver Szasz (2014) What are the trends in local hyperthermia? Oncothermia Journal 10:82-82

“Introduction: Hyperthermia was one of the very first medical approaches. It was based on various religions and had deep philosophical roots in most of the ancient cultures. The discovery of electromagnetism gave new hopes for oncological applications a century ago, however up to now it suffers from lack of wide acceptance. Medical challenges: The main problematic points of the extended applications are connected with the control of the process, the adequate dose and protocol of the method and the reproducibility of the results. Hyperthermia in oncology has similar status that other medicaments, the difference between the medicine and poison is only the dose. The other medical challenge is the systemic, non-local effect of the malignancy, which is curatively approached by a local method. This is of course a (apparent) contradiction, which has to be solved for further developments. …”

Andocs G, Okamoto Y, Balogh L, Meggyeshazi N, Szasz O (2014) Oncothermia research at preclinical level. Oncothermia Journal 10:91-98

“Objectives of the work: Our paper has double objectives: first it is connected to the human medicine, aiming to model the natural human tumors much more realistically than the rodent tumor models. In this line we treat spontaneously occurring tumors and metastases on companion animals. During these experimental oncothermia treatments we can collect a huge amount of measured electromagnetic parameters that can help to understand what is really happening during oncothermia treatment and can help to optimize the next generation oncothermia devices. The other goal is to develop a dedicated tumor treating device for the veterinary market because it does not have a really effective, relatively cheap and easy to use method to fight against pet cancer. We show that oncothermia has definite benefit in both the objectives. …”

Tae Sig Jeung, Sun Young Ma, Jeasang Yu, Sangwook Lim (2014) Results of oncothermia combined with operation, chemotherapy and radiation therapy for primary, recurrent and metastatic sarcoma. Oncothermia Journal 10:116-117

“Purpose: Sarcoma is a rare type of cancer. Surgery is known as the only treatment that shows definite response. But it represents high incidence of local recurrence and distant metastasis. Although it shows partial response to chemotherapy, there is no definitive chemotherapy regimen to control it effectively up to now. It is also known that sarcoma is resistant to radiotherapy due to having large portion of hypoxic cells. Hyperthermia treatment can apply heat to hypoxic cell because hypoxic cell is weak at heat but it develops heat tolerance due to appearance of heat shock protein during treatment and treatment efficacy goes down as hyperthermia repeats. We have studied if oncothermia treats sarcoma effectively without developing heat tolerance. …”

Stefan Heckel-Reusser (2014) The use of fever-range whole-body hyperthermia (FRWBH) in oncology in relationship to the therapeutic contexte. Oncothermia Journal 10:119-119

“Fever-range whole-body hyperthermia (FRWBH) with an elevation of body temperature to 38.5-40.5°C is widely used in complementary oncology in Germany. Most of the clinics consider it as an important basic module of an integrative cancer therapy. But there are still a lot of questions on the mechanisms of FRWBH that are highly dependent from the therapeutic contexte. Commonly accepted is the immune-stimulating effect of FRWBH especially for the recovery of the immune system after immune-suppressive cytotoxic therapies. This general immune-stimulating effect might also be crucial if FRWBH is used for lowering the risk of recurrence after successful primary therapy. …”

“Abstract: Hyperthermia (HT) is a potent sensitizer for radiotherapy (RT) and chemotherapy (CT) and has been proven to modulate directly or indirectly cells of the innate and adaptive immune system. We will focus in this article on how anti-tumour immunity can be induced by HT. In contrast to some in vitro assays, in vivo examinations showed that natural killer cells and phagocytes like granulocytes are directly activated against the tumour by HT. Since heat also activates dendritic cells (DCs), HT should be combined with further death stimuli (RT, CT or immune therapy) to allocate tumour antigen, derived from, for example, necrotic tumour cells, for uptake by DCs. …”

“Abstract: Hyperthermia (HT) - heating the tumor in the range of 40.0 - 44.0 0C - combined with radiation (RT) and/or chemotherapy (CT) is a well proven treatment for malignant tumors. The improvement of the techniques for monitoring and adapting of the desired temperatures even in deep seated tumors has led to a renaissance of, now quality-controlled, HT in multimodal tumor therapy approaches. Randomized clinical trials have shown improved disease-free survival and local tumor control without an increase in toxicity for the combined treatment. In this review, we will focus on biological rationales of HT comprising direct cytotoxicity, systemic effects, chemosensitization, radiosensitization, and immune modulation. …”
