Siva Therapeutics is developing Targeted HyperthermiaTM Cancer Therapy, an elegant, safe and effective cancer treatment which generates therapeutic heat within solid tumors using SivaRodsTM gold nanorods and a SivaLumTM infrared light device. THT has multiple beneficial effects on tumors, and it is more selective than chemotherapy, less destructive than radiation, and without the risks of surgical treatment. This treatment promises to be minimally invasive, to reduce harmful side effects, and to stimulate the immune system. In addition to being more affordable, this technology could deliver faster results than current cancer treatments.
