Our research group found that a brief daily therapeutic electromagnetic field exposure (TEMF) slowed breast cancer tumor growth in syngenetic mice. The optimal TEMF exposure dose for retardation of tumors growth and angiogenesis without harmful side effects was a 120 Hz semi-sine wave given at 15 mT for 10 minutes a day. This TEMF therapy gave the maximum antiangiogenic effect with no noticeable side effects. Although this TEMF slowed tumor growth it did not cause the tumors to shrink in size.
An experiment was done to find out if combining two different therapies, one targeting angiogenesis (TEMF) and the other targeting killing of rapidly dividing cells (gamma irradiation-IR), might have an additive tumor inhibitive effect. In short TEMF, combined with IR proved to have a significant additive tumor inhibiting effect and TEMF was judged to be a safe effective adjunct to IR therapy.
