Effects of Oncothermia

Effects of Oncothermia

Conventional Hyperthermia

Both malignant and healthy tissues are uniformly heated from all sides. The temperature difference between tumor cells and surrounding healthy tissue is hardly measurable (even, focused heating).

Oncothermia

The electric field and resulting heat are directed to the area of the tumor cells. So the temperature of the healthy tissue increases only very slightly (conductive heating). The effect is more localized and the benefits much greater. The temperature can reach 42-43ºC without damaging any healthy tissue or skin, but it needs to reach a minimum of 38ºC for its action at the tumor level. Already at a temperature of 38ºC, Oncothermia is 45.9% more effective than conventional hyperthermia. And at 42ºC it is 57.1% more effective.

In a clinical trial conducted with 306 patients with breast cancer, of whom 44% received radiotherapy alone, and 56% combined with Oncothermia, it was found that with a temperature of 42.5-43ºC, and a number from sessions 2 to 8 the improvement increased from 41% to 59% with Oncothermia. And in cervical cancer total remission can increase from 57% to 87%, and 3 years of survival from 37% to 51%.

Stimulation of the immune system and pain reduction
Oncothermia inhibits the natural activity of malignant cells and stimulates the patient's immune response. It also helps to effectively reduce the patient's pain.

In other words, the treatment of Oncothermia is based on two key effects: energy absorption and selection at the cellular level, both controlled by a modulated electric field that crosses the patient. In this way, the tumor becomes a constant parameter and Controllable within a closed electrical circuit.
