Abstract

We treated 1, 225 advanced or recurrent cancer patients with hyperthermia or immunotherapy (2005/7-2010/12). We had 174 (14.7%)clinical benefit cases (CR, PR and long SD) including 32 complete response (CR) cases. CASE 1: A 63-year-old male, rectal cancer, post operative recurrence with MRSA abscess located in abdomen. He was treated with dendritic cell therapy and hyperthermia. He showed a CR. CASE 2: A 62-year-old female, ovarian cancer, post operative recurrence. She was treated with standard chemotherapy, but she showed a PD. Then she was treated with dendritic cell therapy and hyperthermia. She showed a CR. CASE 3: A 46-year-old female, lung cancer, postoperative recurrence. She was treated with standard chemotherapy and molecular target therapy, but she showed a PD. Then she was treated with dendritic cell therapy and hyperthermia. She showed a CR.
