Abstract

Hypothermia has been gaining a lot of interest as a method for treating cancer particularly as an adjunct to other modalities such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Self controlled magnetic hyperthermia takes advantage of producing localized heating by subjecting nanomagnetic particles to an alternating magnetic field. The temperature rise at the cancer tissue is controlled by the particles Curie temperature. In the present paper Mn 0.5Zn 0.5Gd xFe (2-x)O 4. nanoparticles were synthesized using chemical co precipitation technique to obtain particles with Curie temperature of 42 and with high value f magnetization. These particles showed high promise for self controlled magnetic hyperthermia application.
