Hyperthermia and Cancer

The combination of immunotherapy with hyperthermia for treating cancer has been shown to have significant clinical effects.

adaptivetumor 300x188The accepted view of the cancer-host immune interface is that tumors possess unique antigens that can be recognized by the immune system.

After antigen uptake at tumor sites, APCs have the ability to create a robust response by entering lymphoid compartments and programming lymphocytes. Following generation and expansion to large numbers, cytotoxic lymphocytes then traffic to tumor sites for targeted cell killing.


To understand how temperature may influence the immune system, it is necessary to define the concept of hyperthermia.

Breast Biopsies Leave Room for Doubt, Study Finds

The New York Times - By DENISE GRADYMARCH 17, 2015 

Breast biopsies are good at telling the difference between healthy tissue and cancer, but less reliable for identifying more subtle abnormalities, a new study finds. 

Because of the uncertainty, women whose results fall into the gray zone between normal and malignant — with diagnoses like “atypia” or “ductal carcinoma in situ” — should seek second opinions on their biopsies, researchers say. Misinterpretation can lead women to have surgery and other treatments they do not need, or to miss out on treatments they do need.

The new findings, reported Tuesday in JAMA,challenge the common belief that a biopsy is the gold standard and will resolve any questions that might arise from an unclear mammogram orultrasound.

SHOCK STUDY: Chemotherapy can backfire, make cancer worse by triggering tumor growth.

Daily News, August 2012 

Long considered the most effective cancer-fighting treatment, chemotherapy may actually make cancer worse, according to a new study.

The extremely aggressive therapy, which kills both cancerous and healthy cells indiscriminately, can cause healthy cells to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to further treatment.

Researchers in the USA made the 'completely unexpected" finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resistant inside the human body when they are so easy to kill in the lab.

They tested the effects of a type of chemotherapy on tissue collected from men with prostate cancer and found evidence of DNA damage in healthy cells after treatment, the scientist wrote in Natural Medicine. Chemotherapy works by inhibiting reproduction of fast-dividing cells such as those found in tumors.

The scientist found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein called WNT16B which boosts cancer cell survival. "The increase is WNT16B was completely unexpected," study co-author Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle told AFP.

Do Statins Cause Cancer?

Dr. Duane Graveline, MD, MPH, is a former NASA astronaut and has authored several books on the dangers of statins. 

He offers clinics proof that statin drugs can cause prostate cancer, memory loss, neuropathy, etc. His website is very informative and interesting. If you or someone you love is taking statins to lower cholesterol, please check out this web site. And a bit thank you to Dorothy, who introduced us to this site!
