Welcome To St. Jude

St. Jude would like to introduce you to a new prostate cancer treatment protocol utilizing the safe clinical application of intracellular hyperthermia therapy. The net result of this therapy causes your body's mitochondria to be converted from efficient "powerhouses" of energy production to "chemical furnaces", dissipating the lost energy as heat.

Such augmented heating of the cells of the malignant tumor is not compatible with cancer cell survival and causes death by necrosis and apoptosis (organized death of cells).
