Siva Therapeutics’ goal is to develop the next generation of interventional oncology that is less invasive, safer, more effective, less costly, and more practical than current cancer therapies on the market. Currently, cancer patients face treatments that are invasive, risky, disfiguring, moderately effective at best, and very costly.
Siva’s approach is to use SivaRodsTM gold nanorods and SivaLumTM infrared light device to destroy solid tumors using Targeted Hyperthermia (THT) and improve patient health and outcome. To learn about our approach and technology, visit our technology page.
Siva Therapeutics is developing THT, an elegant, safe and effective cancer treatment which generates therapeutic heat within solid tumors using SivaRods gold nanorods and a SivaLum infrared light device. THT has multiple beneficial effects on tumors, and it is more selective than chemotherapy, less destructive than radiation, and without the risks of surgical treatment. This treatment promises to be minimally invasive, to reduce harmful side effects, and to stimulate the immune system. In addition to being more affordable, this technology could deliver faster results than current cancer treatments.
