Studies on the Interaction Between Electromagnetic Fields and Living Matter Neoplastic Cellular Culture
The following applications illustrate the therapeutic aspects:
- Illnesses of the locomotor organs—electromagnetic fields are used for accelerating bone regeneration especialiy in fractures that do not heal spontaneously and for analgesic effects.
The results reported in literature relate no side effects to the treatment (62, 65, 71, 76, 77, 78 ).
Especially noteworthy is the study of cartilage regeneration and osteoporosis.
- Illnesses of the vascular apparatus—excellent results are described in cases of phlebitis and related after-effects; varicose ulcers react positively to the treatment in 90% of the cases with rare recurrences. Also obstructive arteriopathology of the lower limbs responds well to electromagnetic treatment, showing both subjective and objective improvements (79)
Dermatological illnesses—both atrophic dermatitis and psoriasis respond to the treatment with satisfactory results in the latter in 60% of the cases. Bedsores can also benefit from electromagnetic treatment (79)
- Surgery electromagnetic fields promote the healing of surgical wounds (79)
- Infiammatory illnesses—all types of acute and chronic phiogosis that were tested showed benefits from treatment with electromagnetic fields (80, 81)
- Neurological illnesses—positive effects were noted on neuritis irritation and on postherpetic neuropathologies (82)
- Analgesic treatment—there are numerous observations and applications of the analgesic effects of electromagnetic treatments not only in inflammatory and degenerative pathologies like arthritis, but also in neoplastic pathologies (53, 83)
A growing literature proposes the use of electromagnetic energy with cancer patients. Non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation is used in the oncological field with various objectives depending on the frequency range (86, 87). Their use, besides the analgesic effects already described, can make use of the antiblastic action that can be direct or indirect, or they can be applied toward the reduction of the hiatrogenic effects of radioand chemotherapy (16, 17, 69, 87, 88). The therapeutic effects mentioned above often use the thermal effect of the induction of disorder in the target tissue; however, the major interest lies in the non thermal effects, which, paraphrasing Adey, might allow interventions on cell functions using the Ianguage of the cells themselves (89, 90) by means of a highly specific modulation of frequency and intensity.
The characteristics of the equipment were as follows: lowpower electromagnetic waves (0.25 watt) with frequencies in the kiIohertz range and specifically modulated according to the Gorgun (GEMM: Modulated EIectromagnetic Generator).
In Vivo Effects
Modulated electromagnetic fields were applied to mice in 1974. The observations were conducted at the Marburg Universitat Klinik und Polikiinik fur Nuclearmedizin, Radioiogiezentrum der Philippsuniversitat Marburg/Lahn at the Institute for Biophysics and Nuclear Medicine. Before being subjected to electromagnetic fields, the mice were inoculated with three different types of histopathological material:
- Yoshida Solid Asditis Walker
A regression of the pathology was observed after the application of the electromagnetic fields.
Some clinical cases are presented below, which indicate biological effects from modulated electromagnetic fields not only in cells in vitro, but also in organisms in vivo. Histopathological examinations showed that the index of proliferation decreased. Treatments were applied to patients suffering from different types of malignant neoplasia. The treatment applied was highly specific for each patient, based on the type of histopathology, the stage of the illness, and a series of personalized clinical, biophysical and environmental parameters.
The electromagnetic waves used had a frequency in the kilohertz range, a power of 0.25 watts, and were applied daily for a period of time specifically determined for each case.
All the studies that follow were carried out under the direction and responsibility of medical personnel.
Patient B.G., female, age 49, affected by ductile infiltrating carcinoma of the breast. After surgery and chemotherapy, metastases were noted in the axilary region. A month of treatment was performed in 1989 during which time the metastases regressed. Xray examinations following the treatment showed no pathological alterations.
Patient V. G., female, agè 45, affected by a stomach carcinoma (adenocarcinoma slightiy differentiated with ring cells and castone). Material was drawn from a voluminous sovrangular gastric ulcer, and the patient underwent a total gastrectomy. Before the therapy, metastases were present in the locoregional lymph glands, and the patient exhibited a compromised general condition. Treatment with electromagnetic energy was applied in 1988 for about fortyfive days. The metastases disappeared, and in the following checkups no recurrence was observed.
Patient V.A., female, age 45, affected by lelomiosarcoma retro peritonale that in 1984 showed a diameter of over 40 cm. Before the treatment the patient complained of strong abdominal pains and generally poor health, edemas in the lower limbs due to the compression of the lower vena cava, and hydronephrosis due to uretral compression. Chemotherapy had had no effect and surgery was impossible because of the adherence of the mass to vital organs, in particular the aorta. After about two months of treatment in 1987 her condition had improved and the mass seemed to have been reduced by more than half.
A surgical biopsy showed fibrous muscular type cells of modest density with no cell abnormality or mitosis.
In 1991 an echography showed that the volume of the mass had further reduced to about 12 to 13 cm.
The mass subsequently reduced further, and in 1993 echography showed a mass dianleter under 8
Patient N. M., female, age 41, had undergone a mastectomy in 1988 for infiltrating breast carcinoma followed by chemotherapy. After two years multiple bone metastases were observed in the pelvis and thigh.
Figures 10 and 11 show the outcome of the X-ray examinations before and after the treatment with electromagnetic fields in 1990 (lasting about one month).
The medical report (referring to Figure 11) stated: “Compared to the last observation there are evident signs of calcifying bone repair at the endosteale and e periosteal levels. The reconstruction is apparent at the level of the right proximate metafisi, at the level of the right ischio, and corresponding to the neck of the left thigh.”
Patient S. M., female, age 64, suffered from infiltrating ductile carcinoma of the breast. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy were performed, but the illness progressed to the presence of metastases in the axial area and in the lungs (the chest X-ray showed small round opacities of the secondary type in both lung regions, more numerous in the lower median third right side).
The treatment in 1989 with electromagnetic energy Iasted two months. The metastases began to regress, although the signs in the lungs remained visible on subsequent X-ray checks. By 1993, the pulmonary lesions had disappeared, and the medical report stated that “no infiltrating perenchimali lesions can be observed.”
A radiological inspection in 1994 confirmed this result.
Patient E. P., male, age 59, was diagnosed with pulmonary adenocarcinoma in 1988.
The patient had undergone surgery with the removal of the median and lower lobes of the right lung. Subsequently extensive recurrence was observed in the right thoracic cavity and in the mediastinum (Figure 12) He suffered from a generally poor physical condition and intense thoracic pain. The clinical conditions did not permit further surgery, chemiotherapy, or radiological treatments. Treatment with electromagnetic fields in 1989, which lasted approximately two months, brought about an improvement in the clinical conditions, disappearance of the pain, and reduction of the neoplastic mass.
In Figure 13, the thoracic x-ray following treatrnent can be seen, where it is evident that there was a reduction of the mediastinic volume and expansion of the upper right pulmonary lobe.
