Curative effects for other diseases

Notes for Microwave Treatment

1.    Patients can receive the treatment in ordinary clothes; they do not need to undress but are requested to remove any metallic objects, magnetic cards, electronic devices, disposable pocket warmers, compresses or other items which might generate heat when irradiated with microwaves.

2.    Patients fitted with a cardiac pacemaker cannot receive this microwave treatment.

3.    Microwaves can have a significant effect on liquid, so patients with abdominal cancers are requested to urinate before treatment.  Microwaves have proved ineffective in many cases of malignant pleural effusion or ascites; its application to such cases requires further study.

4.    Surgical operation should be a prerequisite for colon cancer patients because preoperative microwave irradiation may cause bacterial infection and subsequent enlargement of necrotic tumor marks, which may cause intensinal obstruction. Preoperative irradiation, however, can shrink the lymphatic glands and destroy the abnormal blood vessels of the malignancy; thus, it helps eliminate cancer invasion, isolate the cancer, reduce the extent of surgery required, the duration of that surgery, and also prevent postoperative relapse and metastasis.

5.    The effect of microwaves on liver cancers varies greatly depending on the individual being treated. Liver cancers can be caused by many factors, including bacteria, viruses, amoeba, and roundworms. For this reason it may be safer to irradiate with microwaves for very short periods, while determining the relevant factors. Strong microwave irradiation on liver cancer cases may subsequently cause necrotic tissues to become hollow and swollen and prognosis consequently unfavorable. In such cases, the preparation of some sort of appropriate treatment, such as absorption of gas inside necrotic tissue cavities, is necessary, but such measures require further investigation. When irradiating internal organs adjacent to the liver, the surface of the skin corresponding to the location of the liver inside the body should first be covered with aluminum foil. At the end of treatment, the aluminum foil should be removed and the surface of the skin corresponding to the location of the liver irradiated for just a few seconds.

6.    In order to annihilate the activity of hepatitis viruses (HCV, HBV) with microwaves, the entire body needs to be thoroughly irradiated.  This will cause serum iron to return to normal levels, and liver function to gradually improve. We have not seen any cases where patients irradiated subsequently developed liver cancer.

7.    In those cases where stomach cancer has reached the muscular layers, microwave treatment should be preceded by surgical operation. Microwave irradiation for the prevention of postoperative relapse and metastasis is equally effective in this kind of stomach cancer case as it is in other cases.  In one case, the condition of an elderly patient with widespread stomach cancer improved by daily intake of fresh vegetable juice and microwave irradiation, but this is a rare case and cannot be generalized. Meanwhile, microwave irradiation has proved ineffective for scirrhous stomach cancers.

8.    It is difficult to cure breast cancer by microwave irradiation alone, whether it be inflammatory breast cancer, scirrhous cancer or widespread ulcers. Where breast cancer is irradiated with microwaves, the necrotized tissues will rupture the skin and exude through it one or two years after the irradiation. When signs of imminent rupture are observed, the necrotic tissues should be resected before skin rupture. In some cases, administration of Herceptin® (generic name: Trastuzumab) after the tissue necrotization can remove the need for resection.

9.    Microwave treatment is effective for mandibular bone cancer. However, treatment is required to deal with necrotized tissue, which may rupture and exude through the skin subsequent to treatment.

10.Sarcoma is prone to relapse even when it has been excised, so frequent postoperative microwave irradiation is required.

11.NK cell- and T cell-based immunotherapy in combination with cancer activity annihilation therapy is desirable for lung cancers in the third or later stages.

12.The curative effects of microwave treatment cannot be expected to manifest for patients with highly progressive cancer who are suffering from intensifying pain, severe anemia, and who have difficulty in food ingestion resulting in severe malnutrition.

13.Frequent microwave irradiation is required for cases of cancer with strong cancer activity and cases of cancer with bone metastasis.
