Millimeter Wave and Drug Induced Modulation of the Immune System -Application in Cancer Immunotherapy

Millimeter Wave (MW) Therapy is the application of low-intensity millimeter-wavelength electromagnetic waves in the treatment of a large variety of diseases including cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, dermatitis, gastrointestinal disorders, wound healing, pain relief, and the reduction of toxic side effects of chemotherapy in cancer patients. MWs, a form of microwaves, are non-ionizing and are administered onto a localized area of the skin at a sufficiently low intensity that there is no perceptible heating. The three most common frequencies used are 42.2, 53.6, and 61.2 GHz. In addition to its demonstrated effectiveness, it is a non-invasive, painless, relatively inexpensive modality with exceedingly rare and minor side effects. Although MW therapy has been and continues to be used extensively throughout the former Soviet Union with very impressive successes, it is virtually unknown to Western physicians. Reasons for the lack of acceptance in Western Countries include: (1) the lack of well described reports in peer-reviewed scientific journals, (2) the lack of well controlled, double-blind clinical trials, and (3) the lack of any known and accepted mechanism explaining how a localized MW exposure on the skin can be therapeutic in a large number of remote or generalized pathologies. Consequently, the Center for Biomedical Physics at Temple therapy: its validity, its effectiveness, and most of all the mechanisms underlying its effectiveness.

Millimeter Waves – EHF

Low-Intensity Electromagnetic Millimeter Waves for Pain Therapy (Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2006)
Millimeter wave therapy (MWT), a non-invasive complementary therapeutic technique is claimed to possess analgesic properties. We reviewed the clinical studies describing the pain-relief effect of MWT. Medline-based search according to review criteria and evaluation of methodological quality of the retrieved studies was performed. Of 13 studies, 9 of them were randomized controlled trials (RCTs), only three studies yielded more than 3 points on the Oxford scale of methodological quality of RCTs. MWT was reported to be effective in the treatment of headache, arthritic, neuropathic and acute postoperative pain. The rapid onset of pain relief during MWT lasting hours to days after, remote to the site of exposure (acupuncture points), was the most characteristic feature in MWT application for pain relief. The most commonly used parameters of MWT were the MW frequencies between 30 and 70 GHz and power density up to 10 mW cm−2. The promising results from pilot case series studies and small-size RCTs for analgesic/hypoalgesic effects of MWT should be verified in large-scale RCTs on the effectiveness of this treatment method.

Medical application of millimetre waves

About the biological effects of high and extremely high frequency electromagnetic fields. (Acta Physiol Pharmacol Bulg. 2003)
Microwaves as well as millimetre waves are widely used in medical practice and in everyday life. The existence of interaction between the exogenous and endogenous electromagnetic fields with biological systems is now a subject of intense discussion. The most contentious question is the existence of a possible specific (non-thermal) effect of microwaves, unrelated to that caused by increased temperature. Although numerous data have been published on the possible non-thermal effects of the studied electromagnetic fields on different kinds of living systems, only little understanding is gained about the modes of microwave action. Here we review data, which provide evidence that non-thermal microwave effects do exist and may play a significant role. This evidence is based on research at all biological levels, from cell-free systems through cells, tissues and organs, to animal and human organisms.

The therapeutic use of electromagnetic millimeter waves of nonthermal intensity–millimeter-wave therapy

Millimeter waves in the treatment of neurological manifestations of vertebral osteochondrosis. (Crit Rev Biomed Eng. 2001)
A new millimeter-wave therapeutic technique, which combines pulsed electromagnetic radiation with noise, was developed. This technique produces analgesic and trophic effects, and it also produces an effect on the functional activity of electrically excitable regions of nerve fibers. It can therefore be employed for treating affected nerves and muscles. Hence, it may broaden the range of optimal combinations of biotropic parameters of millimeter-wave methods used in neurological practice.

MWT applied to tender points around the affected joints was safe under the conditions of our study and after an appropriate full-scale double-blind clinical study, may be recommended as an effective adjunct therapy for chronic pain treatment in patients with diffuse connective tissue diseases.

Millimetre wave therapy for pain relief after total knee arthroplasty: a randomised controlled trial. (Eur J Pain. 2008)
Millimetre wave therapy (MWT) is a promising complementary method for pain relief, however rigorous investigations of its effectiveness are needed.

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of different types (static and time varying, continuous and pulsed), with a wide frequency range (1 Hz – 70 GHz) and with a broad intensity range (1 μT – 15 T) have been reported to interact with immune cells. However, most of the publications lack the basic information, which would explain the choice of a particular signal. In vivo, EMFs have been shown to significantly reduce pain levels in patients suffering from various diseases. This led to hypothesis that the beneficial effects of EMFs could be achieved by regulating inflammatory immune processes.

Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields as effectors of cellular responses in vitro: possible immune cell activation.
Although 50/60 Hz EMF do not directly lead to genotoxic effects, it is possible that certain cellular processes altered by exposure to EMF indirectly affect the structure of DNA causing strand breaks and other chromosomal aberrations.
