New heckel-HT3000 WBH system in the Centro Oncologia of Hospital da Luz, Lisboa


In the end of June, a new heckel-HT3000 system was installed by our Portuguese representative SOMS Medical Lda. in the Centro Oncologia of Hospital da Luz, one of the largest and most respected private hospitals in Portugal.

The responsible oncologist Dr Joao M. Pinto has already collected well-promising experiences in the combination of fever-range whole-body hyperthermia (FR WBH) and chemotherapy (e.g., presentation of WBH with concomitant capecitabine in third line therapy for BRCA mutated metastatic breast cancer, ESHO 2018 Berlin, P 38, p. 506).

Dr. Pinto: “I am interested very much in the use of combined fever-range WBH and systemic chemo- and immunotherapies, especially in cases where the response to standard protocols is unsatisfying”.
