The changes in immunologic indexes were studied in 90 cancer patients treated with artificial whole body hyperthermia and hyperglycemia. The changes of the indexes under study showed a double-phase curve after a hyperthermic session–the phase of „heat shock aftermath“ involving a short-term decline in certain immunologic indexes was followed by a general improvement of immunologic vigor of cancer patients. Different components of cancer patient immunologic system reacted differently to whole body hyperthermia.
