Treatment Turns Up Heat On Tumours

The title of this post, is the same as that of an article in Tuesday’s Times.

It describes research at the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering, where ultrasound is used to heat liver cancers to over 39.5 °C. The raised temperature then triggers the release of a drug.

The last quote of the report is from a researcher involved.

We can now begin to realise the promise of precision cancer medicine.

I’ve read about other ideas with the same outcome of precision.

I suspect my grandchildren will have a much higher chance of being cured of cancer.
