Any patient with a measurable solid tumor, resistant to standard treatment, or who has recurrent, or metastatic disease, is eligible for treatment, in principle .   However, to actually be enrolled in a thermochemotherapy treatment protocol, the candidate will need to have suitable results from a series of preliminary tests performed to exclude cardiac disease, establish adequate pulmonary function, and rule out cancer metastases of the brain. Additionally, some protocols are restricted to specific cancer types:

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