Iron(III) oxideγ-Fe2O3 Nanocolloid CAS Number : 1309-37-1
Among the various advantages of MFH are: - Good results in local (intratumoral) administration . - Good results in organs where nanoparticles naturally accumulate. Some of the disadvantages at the current state of the art are: - There is no possibility of natural selective accumulation of nanoparticles in other organs and tumors. - A very invasive procedure and high concentration is required.
Hyperthermia means an energy transfer from an AC magnetic field to a material that dissipates this energy in form of heat.
MFH consists of an artificial induction of hyperthermia in tumour cells through injection of nanosized magnetic particles. Then the power of an alternative magnetic field is transformed into heat allowing tumor destruction. Tumour cells die when temperature increases 43-45 ºC.
