Oncothermia is a new kind of hyperthermia []. The generic (scientific) name of oncothermia is modulated electro-hyperthermia (mEHT). It is a further development of the heating method, heating selectively the malignant cells instead of the complete isothermal heating of the tumor-mass [].
Four effects form the selection of malignant cells:Continue Reading

The use of hyperthermia as a treatment in oncology is a common topic for debate. Some researchers expect a breakthrough in oncological treatments with hyperthermia, whereas others have disregarded the method. Serious questions concerning hyperthermia have arisen. Should homogeneous (isothermal) or heterogeneous (selective) heating being used? When we use selective heating (heterogeneity), should the entire tumour be targeted or should the malignant cells be individually selected? Does the mechanism involve thermal cell death or thermally-assisted cell death? Is the goal necrosis or apoptosis? Is hyperthermia safe as a monotherapy or does it have to be combined with conventional treatments? When the selection is local, how do we act on disseminated cells that represent a high risk of life threatening metastases? When local heating is the focus, how should it be carried out with measured and controlled? Our objective is to show how precise, selective heat transfer is necessary to remove malignant cells and, consequently, how hyperthermia as part of the immune-oncology can change the game in this promising field of oncological therapies.

Nanothermia: Cancer cells in the focus of modulated Hyperthermia
Hyperthermia does not only fight against cancer, but also for a better quality of life and a longer survival time of the patient. The Spanish magazine Diario Sur now reported about a talk of the Oncotherm founder Prof. Dr. András Szász at the Cellumed-Clinic in Marbella. In this he explained the difference between Nanothermia and Hyperthermia.

We are very much looking forward to this year’s ICHS Conference that will again be hosted by Prof. Dr. Clifford L.K. Pang who organized it very successfully in 2013 also. Prof. Dr. Pang is expecting hundreds of interested participants to present their experiences and new approaches to share ideas and to enjoy this beutiful city, Guangzhou and its surroundings as it happened at the previous event.
The ICHS Conference will be held together with the The 5th Annual Conference of the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies – Specialty Committee of Natural Therapy (WFCMS-SCNT) and the topic “Hyperthermia, Natural Medicine, and Health Maintenance & Cancer Rehabilitation” will cover the following sections:
1.1 Hyperthermia and natural medicine for health maintenance;
1.2 Hyperthermia and natural medicine in prevention and treatment of chronic diseases;
1.3 Hyperthermia and natural medicine for rehabilitation of chronic diseases;
1.4 Hyperthermia and natural medicine for tumor prevention, treatment and rehabilitation;
1.5 Hyperthermia and natural medicine in palliative care for patients with stage III and IV cancers.
We would be more than happy to meet you and your customers in China. Maybe we can also use this event for a distributor meeting to inform you about our developments and to exchange ideas and experiences.
More details about the conference can be found at www.ichs-conference.org.
András Szász visited one of the very busy oncothermia clinics in Spain, Marbella. By answering their questions, he explained details of the actual developments and protocols to the doctors and nurses responsible for the treatment. The video shows explanation of oncothermia and its methodology. The reason of its casting was to keep training that values for the actual and potential users in the Spanish-speaking territories of the Globe. Professor Szász provided and especially extended a valuable discussion with Professor Dr. José Luis García Puche, and they agreed on a possible common research with the Radiotherapy Department of Granada about oncothermia developments.
The video summarizes some of the general points of the discussions, too.
Enjoy the video and use it for actual reference in some challenging cases and training of oncothermia.
