Salt Lake City, UT, April 16, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Pyrexar Medical, the makers of PYREXAR HT Hyperthermia-based cancer treatment systems, announced today that it has received orders for the first two units, of a multi-unit contract, for the BSD-2000 Deep Regional Hyperthermia Systems from the distribution group HanBeam Technology. Hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment in which tumors are exposed to elevated body temperatures, between 104˚ and 113°F. Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues.
Hyperthermia treatment has achieved high clinical response when combined with radiotherapy in the treatment of cancer. “We are very please to have HanBeam Technology as a distribution partner” says Mark Falkowski, CEO. “HanBeam has a solid reputation as a radiation solutions provider in the Korean peninsula”.
