Hyperthermia products find distribution in South Korea
Salt Lake City, UT - (April 14, 2015) - Pyrexar Medical, the makers of PYREXAR HT Hyperthermia-based cancer treatment systems, announced today that it had received orders for the first two units, of a multi-unit contract, for the BSD-2000 Deep Regional Hyperthermia Systems from the distribution group HanBeam Technology.
Hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment in which tumors are exposed to elevated body temperatures, between 104˚ and 113°F. Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to healthy tissues. Hyperthermia treatment has achieved a high clinical response when combined with radiotherapy in the treatment of cancer. “We are very pleased to have HanBeam Technology as a distribution partner,” says Mark Falkowski, CEO. “HanBeam has a solid reputation as a radiation solutions provider in the Korean peninsula.”
