Microwave-induced hyperthermia and ionizing radiation. Preliminary clinical results
Forskningsoutput: Tidskriftsbidrag › Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift
The combination of microwave-induced (2450 MHz) hyperthermia and ionizing radiation was used in 7 patients with superficial malignant tumours, which were considered refractory to other therapy. A newly developed heating system was used, allowing for a maintained temperature at the master probe of 42.5 degrees C +/- 0.5 degrees C during 45 min, but temperature measurements at multiple sites showed a marked variation. This preliminary series indicates that the combination of hyperthermia and ionizing radiation may be useful, the response rate (complete or partial) being 8 of 8 evaluable lesions. Even previously heavily irradiated sites responded. Technical improvements are highly needed to allow for controlled heating of any tissue volume.
