We just returned from a trip to India to attend the SCRAC (Society of Cancer Research and Communication) meeting in the coastal town of Juhu, Mumbai, India.  We had the opportunity to meet radiation oncologists and cancer specialists from the region, and to present our pitch for hyperthermia. We have received positive indications that there will be several Pyrexar Medical Hyperthermia suites installed in India in 2019.

India is projected to be the world's most populous country by 2024.  Surpassing the population of China,  it is expected to be home to more than 1.7 billion people by 2050.  With this continuing growth, the demand for health services also grows. The opportunities in the country are vast and it appears hyperthermia has a chance to gain a foothold as a valuable adjunct cancer treatment.

Last month the local affiliate in Salt Lake City, UT (headquarters for Pyrexar Medical) aired a five-part series on the use of hyperthermia in the treatment of cancer. The report focused on one of our customer sites, Gamma West Cancer Services, and their use of interstitial hyperthermia in combination with brachytherapy.

Key points from this series

  • Hyperthermia is a safe and highly effective cancer treatment
  • Several patients featured in the story had no expectation of survival before hyperthermia
  • Excellent adjunct treatment for Brachytherapy with similar treatment planning
 

We have added English language captions to the video series. This is an excellent opportunity to share this life-saving information on your social media websites. The more individuals that learn about this treatment, the more lives we can change.

The ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah has produced a five-part series on the resurgence of hyperthermia in the treatment of cancer.  Part 1 of 5 aired this evening and features the Pyrexar BSD-500 Interstitial Hyperthermia System used as an adjunct to brachytherapy in the treatment of advanced recurrent prostate cancer.  Reporter Surae Chinn - @suraechinn asks Dr. Hayes of Gamma West Cancer Services to explain how he and his team use hyperthermia to improve cancer outcomes.

As you may know, recurrent cancer is a challenge as the indication often proves to be radio-resistant.  With this in mind, Dr. Hayes has accepted patients that many have given up on.  It is his experience that adding hyperthermia at therapeutic temperatures for one hour will increase oxygenation, increase blood flow and perfusion, inhibit DNA repair and stimulate the body's immune response, making his treatment more effective than other oncologists in the area. Gamma West is able to provide interstitial radiotherapy (brachytherapy) followed quickly by interstitial hyperthermia, in as few as two treatments in a single day.

It is important to share these stories as hyperthermia has proven to change lives and extend life.

Part 2 of the ABC News series visits two patients with life threatening recurrent cancers.  In this installment, we meet Jack, an avid race car driver whose prostate cancer returned after treatment two years ago.  Jack understands the devastating effects of cancer, he lost four siblings to the disease. Jack approached his cancer treatment like he approached racing, he planned to win. Jack is a winner, thanks to his willingness to seek out the best treatment solution, even though far away from home.

Meet Nicole, faced with the recurrence of an aggressive head/neck cancer.  One solution was to remove her tongue to save her life. Luckily she found Dr. Hayes who offered a different solution. Using brachytherapy and hyperthermia, Nicole kept her tongue and her ability to speak and swallow normally. Both patients are now one year cancer free.
