Effective cancer therapies that are less invasive and less toxic are highly desirable. Shortwave radio-frequency (RF) electrical fields have excellent depth of penetration into biologic tissues with minimal toxicity. Study of the release of heat by targeted nanoparticles exposed to RF fields has produced interesting results and led to the possibility of using nanoparticles internalized into cancer cells to produce targeted thermal injury to cancer cells while minimizing toxicity in normal cells.
