CANCER &

HYPERBARICS

In 2013, over 1.6 million people were diagnosed with cancer and over 500,000 cancer related deaths occurred in the U.S. alone. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death, world-wide, and new integrated treatments are being utilized to help combat its devastating effects. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is currently being utilized in conjunction with conventional treatments, including radiation and chemotherapy, to attain optimal dosages for patients, stimulate tumor regression and reduce the side effects of treatments. Cancer thrives in hypoxic environments and HBOT has been shown to increase these oxygen levels to weaken tumors and reduce their aggressiveness. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for cancer with the following:

Reduce Tumor Aggressiveness with HBOT

Increase Natural Killer Cell Activity and Function with HBOT

Enhance IV Cancer Treatments with HBOT

Study:

Tumor Regression Stimulated by HBOT

A non-randomized trial was conducted with 29 patients to evaluate the efficacy of radiotherapy combined with HBOT, in patients with a malignant glioma. Fifteen patients were irradiated daily after HBOT and fourteen other irradiated patients were treated without HBOT. In the HBOT group, 11 of 15 patients (73 percent) showed 50 percent tumor regression. In the non-HBOT group, only four of 14 patients (29 percent) underwent tumor regression. The median survival rate in patients with HBOT doubled that of the non-HBOT group (24 months vs. 12 months) respectively. No serious side-effects were observed in the HBOT patients. This provides additional support for HBOT to be a beneficial treatment for malignant gliomas.
