Clinical trials and literature regarding tumour entities, 06/21

Clinical results on local hyperthermia:

Investigations consistently show noticeably higher rates of complete remission when radiotherapy is combined with hyperthermia, compared to radiotherapy on its own. In over 28 randomised controlled clinical trials, the addition of hyperthermia to radiotherapy or chemotherapy was investigated. In 36 clinical trials, significantly improved results were achieved by combining the treatment with hyperthermia. In particular when treating patients with highly malignant tumours, in the case of patients who had reached an advanced stage of the disease, with therapy-resistant tumours, partial rates of remission were achieved, that are very promising and clearly superior to the previous methods.
