Based on mounting clinical evidence from both the US and Europe, Angeles Hospital has developed a proprietary treatment system called the SO3H System.
The SO3H System incorporates ozone therapies (ozone is known as O3) and hyperthermia (the “H”) towards treating the whole body or systemic (S) treatment. The treatment derives its name by taking a the associated letter from each component of treatment to yield SO3H.
How does the process work?
In the SO3H technique, blood is extracted in a contrast flow and heated up to 113F (45C) by the SO3H system. Ozone is then integrated into the blood through an Ozonification and UV device that processes the blood. Before returning to the body the hyper-oxygenated-heated blood passes through a detoixfication filter to cleanse it of toxins and cellular debris.
Throughout the procedure the patient is monitored by trained staff and by the SO3H sytem at all times in a strict, hospital-controlled environment.
The principle is that cancer cells react more sensitively to the effects of excessive head than normal cells. Also, tumours have an impaired ability to adapt their blood circulation to the effects of high temperatures and thus hyperthermia can cause a reduction of blood flow to a tumour. In addition, heat at this level pushes cancer cells toward acidosis (decreased cellular pH) which decreases the cells’ viability and ability to spread. It also activates teh immune system, causing both increased production of interferon alpha and increased immune surveillance.
Tmour masses tend to have oxygen deprived (hypoxic) cells within the inner part of the tumour. These cells are resistant to radiation, but they are very sensitive to heat. That is why hyperthermia is an ideal companion treatment to radiation. Radiation kills the oxygenated outer cells, while hyperthermia acts on the inner low oxygen cells, oxygenating them to make them more susceptible to radiation damage.
Hyperthermia overcomes tumor resistance to chemo and radiation. It can help the performance of some chemo agents and help destroy cancer cells, especially those in resistant phases of cell division. Hyperthermia induces heat-shock proteins on the sur

by the patient´s own immune system.
