The anti-cancer therapy of “burning” cancer cells with high temperature has been proved to be effective. What kind of cancer can it cure?

It is worrying and helpless to be diagnosed with cancer, because there is still no cure, and there is still a high probability of recurrence . No matter how cancer is treated, it is inseparable from surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and biological therapy, including traditional and innovative methods such as targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and cell therapy, and strives to improve the success rate of anti-cancer and prolong life.

Fighting cancer, In fact, it is fighting against cancer cells. Cancer cells are the basis of cancer focus and are “bad guys” mutated from normal cells. The traditional anti-cancer methods and innovative therapies to deal with cancer cells are roughly as follows:

Packing and removing——Surgical operations, lumping into lumps tumor resection.

Fighting and fighting—systemic chemotherapy, as well as innovative chemotherapy-based therapies, to clean up free cancer cells.

Area attack – radiation therapy and innovative radiation-based therapies to eliminate cancer cells in a defined area.

Precise removal—an innovative anti-cancer precision therapy, which not only removes cancer cells, but also reduces side effects.

In recent years, another effective Anti-cancer therapy – “burning” cancer cells to death with high temperature has attracted more and more attention and application.

The basic principle of the treatment of high temperature “burning” cancer cells is “hyperthermia”, which originated very early. It was recorded in ancient Greece in 400 BC. Medicinal baths and meteorites are also in the category of hyperthermia. The earliest modern application was in Germany in 1866. A doctor found that the tumor disappeared in a cancer patient after a high fever. And it really entered the anti-cancer stage in the 1980s when it was approved by the US FDA. my country’s related research began in the 1990s.

The focus of “heat therapy” The point is the “tolerable temperature difference” between normal cells and cancer cells. Normal cells can survive at 47 degrees Celsius for 1 hour, while cancer cells are finished at 43 degrees Celsius for 1 hour, but it is not applicable to brain parts and blood cancer foci. .

“Heat therapy” is known in the industry as “curing cancer with high fever”, “treating cancer with diathermy”, etc. It belongs to a kind of “green physical therapy”. Under the support of equipment, it is operated by professional physicians. Common hyperthermia treatments include superficial tumor hyperthermia, intracavitary hyperthermia, interstitial hyperthermia, and intraperitoneal perfusion hyperthermia.

Hyperthermia uses physical heating to pour high-temperature liquid enough to “scald” cancer cells into local tissues, keep the temperature constant, and circulate perfusion, so that Cancer cells have no way to survive, and normal cells are minimally affected.

Cancer cells are disorderly and crazily replicating And split, causing headaches for scientists. When they develop to a certain extent, in order to support and expand, they can also differentiate and grow a large number of messy, twisted, crowded blood vessels, and compete with normal cells for nutrients. These blood vessels become the “lifeline” of the cancer focus, but because they are not “standard equipment” of the human body, the cooling effect is poor, and the blood flow is not smooth. Once heated, the cancer cells and illegally protruding blood vessels will be eliminated.

Heating up during heating During the treatment, a certain high temperature can not only cause damage to the cell membrane of cancer cells, but also “cook” the protein in cancer cells, so that DNA cannot be transcribed and copied, and it can also eliminate the cytoplasm in cancer cells, and also clean up the complicated tumor Blood vessels, these three tricks can cause the death of cancer cells. Since the cancer cells are scalded to death, the development of cancer foci will naturally be inhibited.

A university in China organized a In the comparative experiment of hyperthermia for cancer focus, 86 volunteers with colorectal cancer were divided into two groups, one group was treated with hyperthermia, and the other group was treated with ordinary treatment. The follow-up showed that both hyperthermia and ordinary treatment could effectively fight cancer, but the ordinary treatment group had no effect on cancer within 2 years. The recurrence rate was 19%, and 30% within 3 years. In the hyperthermia group, 5% relapsed within 2 years, and 12% within 3 years, and the Reliao group also activated a large number of NK immune cells, which has an advantage in fighting cancer. Anti-cancer, can also reduce recurrence rate.

At present, cancer focus hyperthermia is more combined with chemotherapy to increase energy and efficiency, and is suitable for cancers of the respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, and skin cancer , breast cancer, prostate cancer, thyroid cancer, ovarian cancer, chondrosarcoma, and chest and ascites caused by cancer.

Some people think that since hyperthermia can “burn” cancer cells to death, can a high fever solve the problem, or can they bask in the sun for a long time and lie in bed for a long time? Would high-temperature stone slabs, saunas, and fires work?

These similar “high temperature” means It is not advisable, because the brain cells and the central nervous system can withstand a temperature lower than 42 degrees. Short-term high fever can also induce brain damage, nerve damage, and cause vital organ failure. The method of hyperthermia cannot go deep into the diseased area, and it has no anti-cancer effect, and there may be a risk of scalding the skin and delaying treatment.

With the advancement of technology, microwave and radio frequency have been added to hyperthermia, which enriches the forms and effects of anti-cancer, improves the clinical cure rate and reduces the recurrence rate.
