Phase I, II & III Clinical Studies that used the BSD-2000

Authors: Maguire PD, Samulski TV, Prosnitz LR, Jones EL, Rosner GL, Powers B, Layfield LW, Brizel DM, Scully SP, Harrelson JM, Dewhirst MW.
Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2001 Jul-Aug;17(4):283-90.

PURPOSE:
We prospectively evaluated whether delivering a thermal dose of > 10 cumulative equivalent minutes at 43 degrees C to >90% of the tumour sites monitored (CEM43 degrees T90) would produce a pathologic complete response (pCR) in > 75% of high-grade soft tissue sarcomas treated pre-operatively with thermoradiotherapy.

Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2007 Aug;23(5):451-6.

PURPOSE:
Hyperthermia has been used in several trials to treat pelvic cancers without excessive toxicity and with positive results. The aim of this study was to evaluate feasibility and results in terms of biochemical recurrence-free, disease-free survival, overall survival, and treatment toxicity profile of hyperthermia combined with radiotherapy in locally advanced high risk prostate cancer.

OBJECTIVE:
To evaluate the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, followed by radiotherapy and concurrent hyperthermia (triple therapy) in patients with advanced-stage cervical cancer.

PURPOSE:
To evaluate the therapeutic effect of delivering regional hyperthermia (HT) plus chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients suffering from locally advanced unresectable pancreatic cancer (LAPC).

Publication: J Clin Oncol. 2001 Apr 1;19(7):1951-60.

PURPOSE:

To evaluate therapeutic options for recurrent malignant sacrococcygeal germ cell tumors (GCT) following three-agent, cisplatinum-based, first-line chemotherapy and tumor resection.

Authors: Maluta S, Romano M, Dall'oglio S, Genna M, Oliani C, Pioli F, Gabbani M, Marciai N, Palazzi M.
Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2010;26(2):108-17. doi: 10.3109/02656730903333958.

PURPOSE:
To evaluate the safety of delivering pre-operative regional hyperthermia (HT) plus an intensified chemo-radiotherapy (CRT) regimen in patients suffering from locally advanced rectal cancer.

Authors: Fotopoulou C, Cho CH, Kraetschell R, Gellermann J, Wust P, Lichtenegger W, Sehouli J.
Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2010;26(2):118-26. doi: 10.3109/02656730903369200.

PURPOSE:
Due to the poor prognosis of patients with ovarian cancer relapse (OCR), newer strategies are warranted to improve the therapeutic index. We performed a prospective phase I/II-study of regional abdominal hyperthermia (RHT) combined with systemic chemotherapy in OCR patients in order to evaluate outcome, efficacy and tolerance.
