Abstract

The first evidence of the efficacy in the cancer treatment of hyperthermia, therapy focused on the heating of tumor masses to kill cells and tissues, went back almost a century and a half. One of the most promising techniques for increasing the cells and tissues temperature is based on the use of magnetic nanoparticles dispersed in concentrated colloidal suspensions and stimulated by an external alternating electromagnetic field, known as Magnetic Fluid Hyperthermia. Recently this technique has been used as coadjutant treatment of the most applied chemo and radio therapies in a series of different tumors, but in particular for Glioblastoma Multiforme till to clinical trials level. In this work, we report some of most significant progresses regarding the use of Magnetic Fluid Hyperthermia on Glioblastoma Multiforme disease published in literature during the last year, describing the more interesting outcomes for potential future clinical applications.
