The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) just published a 10 year patient follow-up to a phase III clinical study on a Soft Tissue Sarcoma Study.

With Invited Commentary - Technological Advances, Biologic Rationales, and the Associated Success of Chemotherapy With Hyperthermia in Improved Outcomes in Patients With Sarcoma by Mark W. Dewhirst, DVM, PhD; David Kirsch, MD, PhD

Under the organization of the European Society of Hyperthermic Oncology the study was conducted in 9 centers located in Germany, Norway, Austria and the United States using the BSD-2000 Deep Regional Hyperthermia System. This study enrolled 365 soft tissue sarcoma patients (18-70 years old) that were matched and entered into a double blind study. One group received neoadjuvant chemotherapy consisting of doxorubicin, ifosfamide, and etoposide [CT] treatment and the other group received the same chemotherapy along with a course of hyperthermia [HT].

For non-clinicians, we have done our best to provide the salient points in the above info-graphic. The full article can be found on the JAMA website here.

We feel that the results are astonishing. The HEADLINE: chemotherapy plus hyperthermia equals better results and extended life. #heatmatters

13 new countries 2In our efforts to bring hyperthermia cancer treatment to the world, we are welcoming three new distribution, sales and service companies covering 13 countries.

A friendly reminder that the main Hyperthermia conference events in the US and Europe, STM and ESHO, are right around the corner. These conferences are a gathering of the best in hyperthermia research and an excellent resource for those interested in the field of thermal oncology.

The 35th Annual Meeting of the Society for Thermal Medicine and the 32nd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology will provide an arena for presentations of latest data, concepts, and breakthroughs in our ever-expanding understanding of thermal medicine in the context of engineering, physics, materials science, and biology.

Keynote and Plenary speakers will highlight the extensive connections between physics, information science, biology, imaging, and the thermal state.
