I-Wave Hyperthermia

The most efficient cancer therapy

Hyperthermia (also called the heat therapy) exposes body tissues to moderate temperature (up to 44 ° C) in order to damage and kill cancer cells.

Studies have demonstrated that an intratumoral temperature of max 46°C can damage and therefore kill cancer cells and that with no damage of healthy tissues. While damaging and killing the protein within the cellular structure of the tumor, hyperthermia is the only therapy able the shrink the tumor.

Its only when combined with chemotherapy or radiotherapy that the cell’s death (apoptosis) can be obtained as a therapeutic response.
