Magnesium alloy with eddy-thermal effect for novel tumor magnetic hyperthermia therapy

Magnetic hyperthermia therapy (MHT) as a noninvasive local treatment strategy is able to ablate tumors. There is still a demand to find new magnetocaloric agents with strong AMF-induced heating performance and excellent biocompatibility. The eddy thermal effect of magnesium alloy (MgA) could be employed for MHT to effectively ablate tumors was reported by scientists based in China. Considering the wide clinical use of implantable MgA devices, such a strategy holds great promise in clinical translation.
