DEEP RF HYPERTHERMIA – TECHNICAL HISTORICAL REVIEW

LECTURE

ESHO-Pyrexar Award
PROF. LARS LINDNER

The European Society of Hyperthermic Oncology (ESHO) awarded its highest honor, the 33rd annual ESHO-Pyrexar Award to Prof. Lars Lindner of Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) in Munich for outstanding contributions to hyperthermic oncology and the corresponding scientific achievement.

As the leading center for clinical studies on hyperthermia, LMU has begun operation of the latest MR image-guided hyperthermia system at Grosshadern university hospital. In this department over 15,000 patients have been treated with deep regional hyperthermia, many of whom had soft tissue sarcoma tumors. Alongside a phase III clinical trial on the benefits of adding hyperthermia to chemotherapy already published in JAMA ONCOLOGY, LMU is also running the Hyperthermia European Adjuvant Trial (HEAT) study, a similar randomized phase III trial on pancreatic cancer.

Interview
Prof. Dr. Gaipl

Prof. Udo Gaipl, Head of Radiation Immunobiology at the Department of Radiation Oncology in Erlangen, Germany, explains the special efficacy of immunotherapy and hyperthermia. He has published over 155 peer-reviewed papers on this topic and founded The Radiation Immunobiology Group, aiming to understand the immune functions of patients exposed to radio- or radiochemotherapy especially in combination with immunotherapy.
