Quantum Magnetic Resonance Therapy: Targeting Biophysical Cancer Vulnerabilities to Effectively Treat and Palliate
Background: Radical paradigm shifts in traditional thinking is paramount to winning the war on cancer and understanding why this disease survives even the most brutal of toxic therapies. There is mounting evidence that biophysical signals are integral to the cycle of initiation, progression and death of cancer cells. Innovative technologies that manipulate this vulnerability in solid tumors could effectively be used to perturb only diseased cells and tissues. Not compromising normally functioning cells while controlling tumor progression, is the ultimate goal for evolving cancer therapeutics like Quantum Magnetic Resonance Therapy, headed promisingly in that direction.
Methods: A patented, CE marked device, the CYTOTRON® delivers rotating, target-specific, modulated, safe Radio Frequencies in the presence of an integrated, instantaneous magnetic field. The presumed modulation of the transmembrane potential of tumor cells and downstream cellular signalling by RF for tissue degeneration in cancer underlies Rotational Field Quantum Magnetic Resonance platform technology. Whole body MRI for tissue proton density determinations was used to compute individualized dosimetry to target solitary or multiple regions of interest in the whole body, simultaneously. Exposure to QMRT was for 1 hour daily for 28 consecutive days. Quality of Life assessments, overall survival and tumor stability using RECIST v1.1 were followed up for 12 months.
Results: Significant increase in life expectancy from the predicted to the actual mean (p=2.13 E-12), and improvements in Karnofsky Performance Scale scores (p=7.25 E-06) and Quality of Life scores (p=1.71 E-08 and p=1.91 E-06) were noted. Thirty six of 51 (71 %) terminally ill patients had stable disease one month after completion of QMRT or longer.
Conclusions: Exposure to radiofrequency-mediated QMRT improved life expectancy and quality of life, along with arrest of tumor progression. This therapy can be safely positioned in a palliative care setting, transitioning to mainstream cancer care with more rigorous clinical validation.
