Hematology/Oncology (USA) - Editor-In-Chief, Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine

Dr. Salvatore began his Laboratory and Clinical Research in Nonionizing Radiation in 1984, after completing his training in Hematology/Oncology at the Brown University Cancer Center. His initial work was with Charles Polk and others with a research concentration in the application of Static Magnetic Fields to Medical Diagnosis and Therapy, particularly in the therapy of Cancer. Dr. Salvatore is Chief, Division of Hematology/Oncology at the VA Medical Center in Phoenix, and currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine. Dr. Salvatore notes that his participation in the conference represents his opinions only and not those of the U. S. Government.

Abstract

Electromagnetic Fields in Cancer Therapy

Static Magnetic Fields (SMF) are Non-Time Varying Magnetic Fields that have been used in medical diagnosis and therapeutics for many years. The basic Physics of these fields is reviewed and the reasons why they find application in Medical/Biological research. There have been a number of biological effects ascribed to application of SMF to both Cellular and Live Animal systems and these are explored in this talk, with a focus on the results of the application of SMF on Neoplastic Cell Systems and Animal-based Neoplasms. There will also be a focus on how these fields are applied to Humans with Malignancy, particularly Clinical studies that use SMF as part of a therapeutic Cancer therapy program.
