[Purpose]To explore the indications and effectiveness of malariotherapy(MT) for cancer, relation between courses of the therapy andeffectiveness, affection of other anticancer therapies on MT and to observe side-effects and complications of the therapy through preliminary clinicaltrials. [Methods]Seven patients with advanced cancers were selected for the clinical trials. They respectively suffered from adenocarcinoma of breastwith metastases of bones; small cell undifferentiated lung cancer with metastaes of mediastinum; adenocarcinoma of lung with metastases of bones;poorly differenciated squamous epithelial nasopharyngocarcinoma with metastases of lungs, liver and bones; carcmoma of head of pancreas withmetastasis of liver; Kaposi sarcoma of left thigh with local infiltration; mucinous adenocarcinoma of rectum with metastasis of pelvic cavity. Artificialhematogenous vivax malaria we induced. The courses of treatment were 10~17 fever episodes of malaria. [Results]Partial response(PR) or partialeffectiveness was observed in two patients with adenorinrma of breast and Kaposi areoma respectively. No effect was observed in other 5 cases.[Conclusions]The results from the preliminary studies imply that malariotherapy may be partially detive for some advanced tumor patients who arenaive of chemotherapy and injecting therapy of radioactive isotopes. On the basis of sensitivity - increasing effect of heat on radiotherapy we suggestthat a combination therapy of MT with radiotherapy should be studied in the future.
