The use of selected anticancer drugs combined with local hyperthermia may improve the ability of oncologists to control locally advanced tumors. This article addresses this possibility and especially discusses recent developments in the area of hyperthermic chemosensitization of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (cDDP) resistant cells. Only in vitro data will be discussed.
