The contributions by leading researchers and clinicians in thermal biology, hyperthermic oncology, rheumatology, and balneology are in three major sections. The first presents the physiology of temperature regulation as the basis for understanding and creating thermotherapeutic applications. The second section deals specifically with hyperthermia as an adjuvant therapy in oncology, with experimental studies and clinical reports. The third major section discusses thermotherapy in states of chronic inflammation, especially rheumatic and degenerative diseases, and of acute and chronic pain. This book is valuable both as an update and as a source of information for physiologists and cell biologists working in oncology, rheumatic diseases, pain, and rehabilitation.
