The optimum treatment for high-risk soft-tissue sarcoma (STS) in adults is unclear. Regional hyperthermia concentrates the action of chemotherapy within the heated tumour region. Phase 2 studies have shown that chemotherapy with regional hyperthermia improves local control compared with chemotherapy alone. We designed a parallel-group randomised controlled trial to assess the safety and efficacy of regional hyperthermia with chemotherapy.
In contrast to the enormous therapeutic efforts, the results of conventional treatments for highly malignant brain tumors (gliomas) are rather unsatisfactory. The prognosis for this tumor type is poor, its median overall survival (6-14 months) is less than one year (1,2,5,6,8). Most of the cases are inoperable, or only partial removal is possible, and the […]
￼In autologous stem cell transplantation contamination of the graft with malignant cells is frequently noticed and necessitates the use of in vivo or in vitro purging modalities. The hematopoietic recovery after transplantation depends on the number of stem and progenitor cells in the transplant. Therefore, ￼in the present study the effects of hyperthermic treatment on […]
