Abstract

Oncological hyperthermia is an ancient method that has been around for thousands of years. Despite this, oncological hyperthermia is still in the early stages of development. Like many such therapies, it lacks adequate treatment experience and long-range, comprehensive statistics that can help us optimize its use for all indications. The reason for this is simply explained by the reason that the overall heating of the locally targeted volume has no adequate harmony between physiology, thermodynamics and technical solutions. Selectively focused heating needs to be applied to the sensitive points of malignant cells in order to liberate energy in the nano-scale cellular region. The present article discusses the mechanisms of heating and the effects of hyperthermia in oncology, and provides a solution by Oncothermia (Nanothermia) which shows efficacy in a wide range of malignancies.
