Some Don’t Like it Hot: Kanzius Radiofrequency Field Treatment for Cancer
  This presentation will include a brief history of the initiation and early years of research with the Kanzius radiofrequency field device.  More importantly, Dr. Curley will provide an update on research findings over the last two years that have added to the excitement and potential for this noninvasive approach to treat patients with cancer.  There is interesting data in a number of types of cancer and are progressing to studies of the effects of the Kanzius radiofrequency field in large animals.  The ultimate goal remains unchanged, specifically, to develop the data needed to see John Kanzius’ dream of using this noninvasive therapy to produce an effective and less toxic treatment for patients with cancer. 
10:30 - 11:30 AM
