perthermia therapy, also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy is the use of heat to damage and kill cancer cells (Cancer.gov). The high temperatures are thought to be able to shrink tumors with minimal damage to normal tissues. The mechanism of action is that high temperatures stop the cancer cell’s ability to repair DNA damage from radiation. The high temperatures specifically disable repair enzymes in the cell, cause cells to release heat shock proteins, and cause the cancer cells to be more sensitive to chemotherapy or radiation. The benefit of cells releasing heat shock proteins is that they cause a person’s immune system to be stimulated and causes their immune system to fight against the cancer cells. By disabling repair enzymes in the cell, the cancer cells then die effectively causing the tumor to shrink (Texas Oncology). History The use of heat to increase immunity and health has existed since the ancient times. The word hyperthermia can be traced back to 3000B.C. where the word was coined from the combination of two Greek words, hyper(rise) and therme (heat). In their definition it was the raising of body temperature to attain a therapeutic effect. Earlier than that, seen in the Edwin Smith Papyrus (from around 1700B.C.), an Egyptian named Imhotep used fire in the treatment of breast cancer, using fire to burn the cancerous cells. Ancient India and China also used hyperthermia for its therapeutic effects. Later on, in ancient Greece and Rome, the Greek philosopher Parmenides believed in the use of fever, whole body hyperthermia, to cure disease. Another Greek philosopher, Hippocrates was also seen successfully treating breast cancer using heat. Later on, in the year 1886, the first paper describing the use of heat to cause tumor regression was published by a German surgeon named Carl D.W. Busch. That event caused others to become interested in the use of hypothermia and inducing fever in patients to treat cancer. In 1891, American surgeon William Coley also documented the remission of cancer with fever and became known as “the father of the modern use of hyperthermia and immunotherapy against cancer” (Gas 2011). Other doctors and researchers tried other methods, like removing blood and heating it, some found success and others found death. Once radiation was discovered in 1895, the use of hyperthermia in cancer treatment decreased also due to underdeveloped methods of treatment and lack of promising results. Then things changed when G. Schwarz in 1910 and Müeller in 1912, tried combining hyperthermia treatment with radiation and received good therapeutic results. Due to funds being diverted to the war effort, interest in hyperthermia therapy was dismissed until 1962 when another American surgeon named George W. Crile Jr. discovered that raising tumors to 42-50 degrees Celsius “selectively destroyed them without damaging the healthy tissue” (Gas 2011). The discovery of microwave heating techniques and the application of it in medicine changed how hyperthermia therapy was implemented and used (Gas 2011). Since then, there have been few trials and not much progress but regardless, hyperthermia therapy is still regarded as a treatment that works. Treatment>GET ANSWER
