Phase 1 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Using Energy Specific Far Infrared Radiation Treatment for Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are the most common neoplasms of the female pelvis. These benign tumors are
generally oval in shape and often highly vascular. On MR imaging exams, uterine fibroids are
easily identifiable. They occur in 20-25% of women of reproductive age and can cause a
variety of problems generally described as either bleeding or mass effects from the fibroid.
We are postulating that energy specific electromagnetic radiation of the uterus will shrink
the benign tumors.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
The primary end point is to determine the therapeutic effects of far infrared radiation on uterine fibroids
