Why Optimal Tumor Heating 44°C - 46°C (110° - 116°F) Can Be a Game Changer for Cancer Patients
The Thermofield® Noninvasive Tumor Heating System is a groundbreaking medical device with enormous potential to improve cancer treatment. By harnessing the power of heat, this cutting-edge system can safely elevate tumor temperatures to levels never before possible with external heating devices, all while ensuring the utmost protection for the skin. Skin surface temperature is 4°C lower than the internal temperature and thus is tolerable for the patient.
Peer-reviewed research has demonstrated that temperatures above 45°C (114°F) effectively destroy cancer cells and stimulate a significant increase in heat shock proteins (HSPs) expressed on the cell surface. This remarkable surge in extracellular HSPs serves as an antigen, compelling the immune system to launch a persistent attack against the tumor. Moreover, it has been observed that optimal heat can kill cancer cells, with 96% of melanoma cells eradicated in-vitro in 24 hours after just 11 minutes of direct heating. Alongside its ability to kill cancer cells and trigger a potent immune response, the continuous heat stress applied to the tumor tends to collapse its blood supply, further inhibiting its ability to survive.
Additional Benefits Associated with Heating the Tumor
✔︎ Better outcomes with no additional toxicity to the patient.
✔︎ Kills cancer stem cells that are highly resistant to conventional treatments.
✔︎ Palliates cancer pain by reducing pressure on adjacent nerve tissue.
✔︎ Enhances the uptake and biodistribution of drugs and natural compounds used to treat cancer.
✔︎ Reverses drug resistance.
✔︎ Disrupts the tumor microenvironment weakening cancer cells and making them more susceptible to anti-cancer therapy.
