Researchers at the Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council have developed a mechanism to improve the efficiency of cancer heat therapy process known as hyperthermia by simultaneous laboratory and analytical simulation of the process. Heating cancer tissues is a way to eliminate cancer tumors. Hyperthermia generally means an increase in the body temperature that is higher than normal. High temperature of body usually results in fever or thermal shock. However, carefully controlled hyperthermia is sometimes used in the treatment of illnesses, cancers in particular. The research aimed to accurately determine optimum parameters of the heating process to cure cancer tumors by using super paramagnetic nanoparticles, the INIC website reported.
