Cancer therapy by heat has been studied in a transplantable rat tumor (R3327G), using temperatures from 42 degree C to 46 degree C for 15-to-60-min duration. Tumor control (growth delay) increased with both temperature and treatment duration, and ranged up to 39 days from a single application of hyperthermia, indicating the effectiveness of this mode of therapy.
