Hyperthermia (Heat Treatments)



1/10 JNCI posts an article on Hyperthermia see below.

10/06 - see study on Avascular Necrosis in Children below.

Back in 1977, The American Cancer Society removed hyperthermia from its Unproven Cancer Therapies list and in 1984, it was approved by FDA for cancer treatment. But it is difficult to find in the U.S.

9/05 More and more work is done in this area, the body of EVIDENCE grows, yet it has still not reached most patients. What a system!
