Title: Radiation and microwave therapy in the treatment of advanced cancer

Abstract

Seventy-two patients with advanced cancer were treated with combinations of heat and radiation in two groups: (a) heat + radiation, and (b) radiation + heat. Of those treated with heat prior to radiation therapy, 32/60 (53%) experienced complete remission of symptoms. In the group exposed to heat after radiotherapy, 11/12 patients (92%) achieved complete remission. The authors present two cases and a review of the literature.
