Immunological Response to Whole Body Microwave Hyperthermia in Normal and Tumor-Bearing Animals

  • S. Szmigielski


Whole body microwave hyperthermia (MwH) results in inhibition of tumor growth in experimental animals, due to the high sensitivity of neoplastic cells to increased temperatures and direct thermal injury to the overheated tumor tissues. However, some other mechanisms, notably those originating from the cell-mediated immune system and non-specific natural antineoplastic resistance are also present.
