1) Combined superficial hyperthermia and radiotherapy for skin tumors.

There are numerous publications and a meta-analysis on the efficacy of combined superficial hyperthermia and radiotherapy in the treatment of locally recurrent breast cancer.
Superficial hyperthermia can also be used for the treatment of other superficial tumors. Dr. Markus Notter from Lindenhofspital Bern describes  in a new publication the available data and his own experience in a German OPEN ACCESS-publication "Hyperthermie und Radiotherapie bei Hauttumoren - Grundlagen, Anwendung, Studienlage beim Melanom, Angiosarkom und Merkelzellkarzinom".

Pre-irradiated chest wall recurrences and other superficial tumors can now also be treated with combined hyperthermia and radiotherapy at Strahlentherapie Bremen. Priv.-Doz. Dr. med. habil. Mirko Nitsche, Radio Oncologist and physician responsible for hyperthermia at the institution, explains the new therapeutic option: "By using hyperthermia, we are able to significantly reduce the dosage of radiotherapy and by means of that treat even patients where a reirradiation with classical dosage would be contraindicated due to cumulative toxicity".

Meanwhile the treatment method is also available at Strahlentherapie am Maximiliansplatz in Munich, more information about that in the next issue of heckelnews.

4) In memoriam Thomas Muffler
On March 19th, 2019 Thomas Muffler passed away unexpectedly at age 66.
As a co-founder of Celsius42+ he had been for years the face of the company, as well as a dedicated salesman in the best way, engaged, reliable, with style and humor.

Company heckel had completely  stopped distribution of capacitive hyperthermia devices in 2006, and thus there has never been any business relationship between heckel and Celsius42+. That did not do any harm to the friendly relationship we had with Thomas Muffler, in fact it was the opposite. Frequently we shared our opinions on various developments and persons in the field of hyperthermia. We from heckel and I personally will miss him a lot.
