BACKGROUND:
Five randomized studies have demonstrated a benefit derived from adding cisplatin (CDDP)-based chemotherapy to radiotherapy (RT) for treatment of cervical carcinoma. The Dutch Phase III pelvic tumor trial demonstrated a survival and local control benefit due to the addition of hyperthermia (HT) to RT. The authors evaluated response and toxicity in patients with locally advanced cervical carcinoma (LACC) who were treated with concurrent weekly CDDP, HT, and RT (whole pelvis [n=7] and whole pelvis and paraaortic nodes [n=5]).

PURPOSE:
In this phase II study, activity and safety of neoadjuvant regional hyperthermia (RHT) combined with chemotherapy was investigated in 59 patients with primary advanced or recurrent high-risk soft-tissue sarcoma (STS).

PURPOSE:
From July 1986 to July 1989, 40 patients (92% pretreated) with deep-seated, advanced soft tissue sarcomas (STS, 25 patients), Ewing's sarcomas (ES, eight patients), osteosarcomas (OS, three patients) and chondrosarcomas (ChS, four patients) were treated at the University of Munich in a protocol involving regional hyperthermia (RHT) combined with ifosfamide plus etoposide.

Publication: Int J Hyperthermia. 2004 Jun;20(4):359-69.

PURPOSE:
The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and toxicity of a novel hyperthermic chemotherapy approach for patients with locally recurrent adenocarcinoma of the rectum. All patients were pre-irradiated (> or = 45 Gy) and had histologically proven pelvic recurrence.

PURPOSE:
Prospective assessment of quality of life (QoL) in patients with refractory, residual or recurrent ovarian cancer receiving whole abdomen hyperthermia and intravenous liposomal doxorubicin chemotherapy.
