Local Hyperthermia can induce an increase of the immune system response There are many studies that support the idea that local and body hyperthermia treatment can be a great complementary therapy to support immune therapy. Preclinical and clinical results show a great anti-tumour response when adding hyperthermia sessions. These studies are revealing a great [...]
