Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS OF INDUCING HYPERTHERMIA IN CANCER CELLS
Abstract:
Inducing hyperthermia in cancer cells. At least some of the example embodiments are methods including: charging a capacitor of a microchip device proximate to cells within the body, the charging by harvesting ambient energy by the microchip device; and when the energy on the capacitor reaches or exceeds a predetermined value inducing hyperthermia in the cells proximate to the microchip device using energy from the capacitor.
