Clinical research into the efficacy of systemic, whole body thermal therapy (hyperthermia) for cancer treatment is being carried out at The Center for Hyperthermia Cancer Treatment at Memorial Hermann Hospital, through the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. Fever-range whole body hyperthermia is combined with chemotherapy in a number of research protocols. The Center for Hyperthermia Cancer Treatment is one of a handful of facilities worldwide offering systemic hyperthermia to cancer patients.   The hyperthermia program has been in existence at Hermann Hospital since 1980 and performs an average of 200 treatments per year under the medical directorship of Joan M.C. Bull, M.D.  Results of our laboratory research are rapidly translated into the clinic.  Eligible patients are enrolled in one of the institutionally approved clinical research protocols and are treated in the University of Texas Health Science Center Clinical Research Unit located within Memorial Hermann Hospital.  Patients with the following cancers may be eligible for inclusion in one of our clinical research protocols:

breast
cervical
cholangioma
endometrial
gastric
head & neck
liver
lung
melanoma
ovarian
