This comprehensive work broadens readers' understanding of the rudimentary mechanism of the anti-cancer effect of hyperthermia. It also presents state-of-the-art clinical outcomes by hyperthermia treatment of cancer. In the past few decades, basic and clinical research have shown through in vitro experiments that hyperthermia inhibits epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), resulting in the prevention of metastasis. It also has been learned that hyperthermia shows its superior benefit when applied in combination with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or various immunotherapies as treatments of several types of carcinoma. The chapters here from expert contributors describe the details of their research for each type of cancer. This book provides not only an overview and the current status of hyperthermia but also its future perspectives. Therefore this volume will greatly benefit oncologists, radiologists and radiology technologists, and chemotherapists who are involved in immunotherapy for all kinds of cancer.

From engineering fundamentals to cutting-edge clinicalapplications This book examines the biological effects of RF/microwaves andtheir medical applications. Readers will discover new developmentsin therapeutic applications in such areas as cardiology, urology,surgery, ophthalmology, and oncology. The authors also presentdeveloping applications in such areas as cancer detection and organimaging. Focusing on frequency ranges from 100 kHz to 10 GHz, RF/MicrowaveInteraction with Biological Tissues is divided into sixchapters: * Fundamentals in Electromagnetics--examines penetration ofRF/microwaves into biological tissues; skin effect; relaxationeffects in materials and the Cole-Cole model (display); the nearfield of an antenna; blackbody radiation and the various associatedlaws; and microwave measurements. * RF/Microwave Interaction Mechanisms in BiologicalMaterials--includes a section devoted to the fundamentals ofthermodynamics and a discussion on energy and entropy. * Biological Effects--investigates the effects of radio frequencyfields on the nervous system, the brain and spinal cord, theblood-brain barrier, and cells and membranes. * Thermal Therapy--includes a description of applicators and anextensive discussion on the foundation of dielectric heating andinductive heating. * EM-Wave Absorbers Protecting the Biological and MedicalEnvironment--investigates materials for EM-wave absorbers from botha theoretical and applications perspective. Special attention isgiven to ferrite absorbers. * RF/Microwave Delivery Systems for TherapeuticApplications--begins with the fundamental features of majorcomponents used in RF/microwave delivery systems for therapeuticapplications. New research towards the development of futuremeasurement techniques is also presented. The book features problem sets at the end of each chapter, makingit an excellent introduction for bioengineering and engineeringstudents. Researchers, physicians, and technicians in the fieldwill also find this an excellent reference that offers all thefundamentals, the most cutting-edge applications, and insight intofuture developments. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all theproblems in the book is available from the Wiley editorialdepartment.

From cell phones to treating cancer, EM energy plays a part in many of the innovations that we take for granted everyday. A basic force of nature, like nuclear energy or gravity, this energy can be harnessed and used, but still holds the potential to be harmful. The question remains, how safe are EM products?

The use of hyperthermia in radiation oncology is well established. Many publications cover the whole field of possibilities and problems of this therapeutic modality. The new development of interstitial and intracavitary hyperthermia, however, is not well known: there are only a few relevant publications in different journals. Therefore, it was appropriate that SAUER and SEEGENSCHMIEDT organized an international meeting on this topic, where experiences with this new and promising technique were compiled and discussed by experts. The papers of this symposium together with additional review papers and clinical studies are published in this volume. The publication begins with the physical and biological background of interstitial and intracavitary hyperthermia continues with comprehensive review papers on clinical topics and then gives examples for a wide variety of clinical applications. This volume will contribute to better understanding and application of the treatment possibilities of radio oncology in combination with this new treatment modality.

Hyperthermia has been found to be of great benefit in combination with radiation therapy or chemotherapy in the management of patients with difficult and com plicated tumor problems. It has been demonstrated to increase the efficacy, of ionising radiation when used locally but also has been of help in combination with systemic chemotherapy where hyperthermia is carried out to the total body. Problems remain with regard to maximizing the effects of hyperthermia as in fluenced by blood flow, heat loss, etc. The present volume defines the current knowledge relative to hyperthermia with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy, giving a comprehensive overview of its use in cancer management. Philadelphia/Hamburg, June 1995 L.W. BRADY H.-P. HEILMANN Preface In an attempt to overcome tumor resistance, hypoxia, or unfavorable tumor condi tions, oncological research has come to focus on gene therapy, immunotherapy, new cytotoxic agents, and increasingly sophisticated radiotherapy. Radiation research has been directed towards heavy particle therapy and modification of the radiation response by either protecting or sensitizing agents. Improved dose localization using rotational or conformal strategies has also been implemented. Recently, changes in radiation fractionation schedules have shown promise of better results. Hyperthermia in cancer therapy can be viewed similarly as another means to increase the sensitivity of tumors to radio- and chemotherapy.
