  1. Hypermed Inc. Uses of U.S.-Patented safe Hyperthermia Technology to Treat Cancers and AIDS&Background Science & Published Academic Papers

  2. US National Cancer Institute Info on Hyperthermia in cancer treatment

  3. Why Hyperthermia? • Cancer cells and viruses can be significantly reduced by heat, as in hyperthermia treatment. This is a well-known biological fact. • What has held back the use of hyperthermia to treat cancer and viral infectionssuch as AIDS is the risk of damage to the brain. • Hypermed, Inc. has developed a patented technology to protect the brain to enable using hyperthermia to be used safely in treating cancers, AIDS and other infections.

  4. Hypermed Inc. Has U.S. Patent on Brain Protection • Patent #6669661: “Method and Device for Central Nervous System Protection During Whole Body Hyperthermia or Hypothermia”, Inventor: Dr. Thomas Yee, MD • Established science: Heat can kill cancer cells & viruses (HIV). • Established science: Hypothermia can preserve viability of organs. • Up to now, whole-body hyperthermia is not used due to fear of brain damage • This patented technology makes it safe to perform whole-body profound hyperthermia to cure cancer and to cure infections such as AIDS.

  5. Market & Revenue Projection for Treating Cancers with Hyperthermia • 500,000 people die from cancer every year in the U.S. 1,000,000 more people die in other affluent countries. • Heat can kill cancer cells. • Hypermed, Inc. has patented technology enabling safe whole-body hyperthermia used in conjunction with chemo, radiation, immuno-therapy, angiogenesis-inhibiting treatments to cure cancers. • If only 10% of those dying of cancer in affluent world seek Hyperthermia treatment, at $50,000, the potential annual revenue is 7.5 Billion Dollars.

  6. Market & Revenue Projection for Using Safe Whole-Body Hyperthermia to Treat AIDS & other Infections • In the US , there are more than 2 million people with HIV virus & AIDS. World-wide, more than 8 million people have HIV infection. Millions of people die from flu & other infections yearly. • Heat can kill HIV, other viruses, and bacteria. Hypermed, Inc. has the US Patent that enables safe administration of whole body hyperthermia. • If only 100,000 people per year seek Hyperthermia treatment for AIDS and other infections, at $50,000, potential annual revenue is $5 Billion Dollars.

  7. Venture Capital Funding Needed for our Safe Whole-Body Hyperthermia Technology To demonstrate the safety profile and efficacy of hyperthermia treatment, Hypermed seeks 5 million dollars to complete animal study in the U.S. and human study abroad. 1st Stage: Animal study using pigs at Utah Artificial Heart Institute Subjects: 60 pigs Time: 6 months Cost: 2 million dollars 2nd Stage: Human study on young AIDS patients in Asia Subjects: 50 young men with AIDS Time: 6 months Cost: 3 million dollars

  8. Patent & Key Technology Abstract • A method and device for intentionally inducing whole-body hyperthermia or hypothermia in a patient for medical treatment while protecting the central nervous system from damage • A whole-body immersion chamber for temperature alteration. And novel uses of existing FDA-approved pharmaceutical agents and monitors to achieve profound brain metabolism reduction and protection prior to temperature alteration or rapid detox challenge • The patient's cerebral spinal fluid is circulated and maintained at temperatures less drastically altered from normal temperatures by a pump and a heater and cooler connected to the patient's spine through catheters. • The patient's central nervous system blood is separated from the rest of the circulatory system and circulated and maintained at temperatures less drastically altered from normal temperatures by pumps and a heater and cooler. The remaining blood in the patient's body is circulated and temperature controlled through pumps and a heater and cooler.

  10. Published Journal Articles Supporting HypermedInc.’s Basis for Developing Technology in Rapid Detox and in Hyperthermia Treatment for Cancer

  11. Supporting Published Journal Papers on Hyperthermia: Medical Journal: Annals of Oncology. 2002 Aug;13(8):1173-84. Heating the patient: a promising approach? van der Zee J.Erasmus Medical Center-Daniel den Hoed Cancer Center, Department of Radiation Oncology, Hyperthermia Unit, Rotterdam, The Netherlands • The effects of both radiotherapy and many drugs are enhanced at an increased temperature • These findings justify using hyperthermia as part of standard treatment in tumor sites for which its efficacy has been proven and, furthermore, to initiate new studies with other tumors. Hyperthermia is certainly a promising approach and deserves more attention than it has received until now.

  13. Medical Journal: Perfusion. 2002 Jul;17(4):279-90. Whole-body hyperthermia: a review of theory, design and application. Vertree RA, Leeth A, Girouard M, Roach JD, Zwischenberger JB.Department of Surgery, The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston • All patients were safely heated to 42 or 42.5 degrees C for 2 h and survived the 30-day study period • Hyperthermia has been used successfully to treat isolated neoplastic lesions of the head and neck, regional tumors such as melanoma of the limb, and is under investigation as either an adjunct to, or therapy for, locally disseminated and systemic diseases

  14. Surgery. 2002 Jan;131(1 Suppl):S121-7. Hyperthermia for rectal cancer. Ohno S, Sumiyoshi Y, Mori M, Sugimachi K. Department of Breast Surgery, National Kyushu Cancer Center, Fukuoka, Japan. Hyperthermia combined with radiation or chemotherapy demonstrates great promise for the treatment of patients with carcinoma of the rectum.

  15. Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy. 2002 Dec;51(11-12):603-13. 41.8 degrees C whole body hyperthermia as an adjunct to chemotherapy induces prolonged T cell activation in patients with various malignant diseases. Atanackovic D, Nierhaus A, Neumeier M, Hossfeld DK, Hegewisch-Becker S Department of Oncology and Hematology, University Clinic Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany • This the first study to provide evidence for prolonged WBH-CT-induced activation of human T cells. • Whole body hyperthermia (WBH) has been used as an adjunct to radio-/chemotherapy in patients with various malignant diseases

  16. Critical Review of Oncology and Hematology. 2002 Jul;43(1):33-56. The cellular and molecular basis of hyperthermia.
