Troisdorf company Oncotherm supports hospital in South Africa in the field of Oncology end of October Prof. Dr. Andras Szasz, founder of Oncothermie, the second Congres de la Societe Tunisienne d ‘ oncologie Medicale in Tunisia took part in. He lectured on the Oncothermie in General and the potential of this special heat therapy in treating cancer, urology and gastroenterology. Now officials of the United Nations (UN), representatives of health ministries and decision makers in Africa, met for the first time to the World Cancer leaders’ Summit 2013 in Cape Town to discuss the global burden of cancer. The focus was a global strategy against the spreading cancer epidemic in countries with low and middle-income. Cancer is, so the organizers, often regarded as a disease of wealthy countries.
But more than 70 percent of all cancer deaths in countries with low or medium income occur. Without countermeasures, the incidence of cancer go up to 2030 in countries with medium Income by 70 percent in countries with low income to 82 per cent, so estimates. The UN with the recently announced commitment pulled the framework for a strategy against it. Then applies the global goal of reducing the premature death due to non-communicable diseases by 25 per cent by 2025. The Cape Town Conference venue has symbolic importance.
Africa is a region that dramatically increases the number of illness and deaths from cancer in the Oncothermie method had its premiere in Johannesburg at the Oncology Conference 2011 SASMO-SASCRO.

The Oncothermie is a form of hyperthermia, specializing in local treatment. You combine this non-invasive thermal therapy with an electrical field to weaken and destroy cancer cells. The target is the (self) destruction of tumor cells. By the specific applicability, the lokoregionale electric hyperthermia is particularly suitable to handle limited or lowland tumors and metastases to the surface.
