About BSD Medical Corporation
BSD Medical Corporation designs and produces cancer therapy systems that deliver precision focused microwave and/or RF generated heat to destroy cancer cells and improve the response of cancer to radiation therapy. Heat treatment of cancer used to improve the effectiveness of radiation therapy (or chemotherapy) is called "hyperthermia therapy." The company's cancer treatment systems have been employed in many clinical trials, and have been used to treat thousands of cancer patients. BSD Medical currently has one FDA Pre-Market (PMA) approval, and a PMA and a 510(k) submission under review by the U.S. Food and Drug administration.
One of the greatest impediments to better cancer treatment is the radiation resistance of cancer. When used in combination with radiation therapy, clinical research has demonstrated that hyperthermia therapy can significantly increase cancer control and/or patient survival rates for some forms of cancer. Clinical research has also shown promising results when using the company's systems in combination with chemotherapy.
