Sunday Afternoon Workshop

Radiofrequency Hyperthermia and Traditional Treatments for Cancer: Research and Clinical Experience in China

With increased attention worldwide on immunotherapy and hyperthermia, traditional cancer therapy like chemotherapy, or radiation therapy, as a monotherapy may give way to these new treatments. To overcome chemo- and radio-resistant tumors, researchers and oncologists are reaching out to treatment combinations that can close the efficacy gap of existing therapies for enhanced tumor control. Monotherapeutic treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy are being pushed aside by dual-therapy treatment regiments. So what can be done to increase chemo- and radio- sensitivity, reduce toxicity and improve outcomes?

Radiofrequency (RF) hyperthermia is one such dual-therapy technology that is leading the charge. Hyperthermia is an ideal adjunct therapy for chemo- or radio-resistant tumors. Focused energy applied to tumor sites (e.g., targeting tumor heating of 41ºC) is a highly effective chemo- and radio-sensitizer. In addition, RF hyperthermia provides the heightened benefit with little to non-toxic effect to the patient.

During this workshop, the combination of RF hyperthermia and traditional therapies for cancer will be presented and discussed. An overview of dual-therapy technology for cancer will also be given. Clinical experiences of dual therapy for cancer in China will be introduced. Besides, the workshop aims to enrich the understanding of dosimetric and biological aspects of the frequencies applied in clinics and to provide a framework for the development of effective and safe therapy for cancer.
