Described is a treatment of cancer and other disease processes, including infectious diseases through the use of external electromagnetic energy to alter electric and magnetic dipoles intracellularly to produce as in the case of cancer, death of the cancer cells in living tissue. The normal cells are not damaged. The process comprises introducing minute particles into the interior of cells in living tissue. These particles are capable of affecting the intracellular conductivity, dielectric properties, dipole content and membrane characteristics of the cell and nucleus. The particles are introduced intravenously, intra-arterially, and/or intra-lymphatically and the subject is then exposed to an alternating electromagnetic field to introduce energy into the interior of the cancer cells and thereby destroy the cancer cells without harming the normal cells. Further, selectivity may be achieved by incorporating specific radioisotopes or tumor specific antibodies bound to the particles. This treatment process may also be used to affect atherosclerotic lesions as well as other disease processes.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
