SALT LAKE CITY -- May 28, 2014

BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: BSDM) (Company or BSD) (
today announced that an editorial advocating hyperthermia treatment was
published in The Lancet Oncology, the premier worldwide journal for original
oncology research. The editorial on the evolving role of hyperthermia in
cancer therapy was titled “Hyperthermia in cancer: is it coming of age?" [The
Lancet Oncol, Vol:15, Issue 6, pages 565-566, May 2014; doi:
10.1016/S1470-2045(14)70207-4.] The editorial was written by Professors Adam
Januszewski and Justin Stebbing, Department of Surgery & Cancer, Imperial
College London.

The researchers reviewed the history of hyperthermia and discussed the
biological mechanism of action that results in hyperthermia induced tumor cell
death. The authors reviewed the published studies that have demonstrated
impressive results from the use of hyperthermia for the treatment of cancer.
The researchers concluded that, “The few, but impressive trials are evidence
that this is not just an anecdotal technology, but one that warrants continued
investment and investigation. The studies’ improvements in tumour response
would generally be hailed a success had they been a pharmaceutical product. So
far, hyperthermia requires trained personnel and specialized equipment;
scepticism is often justified, but data are increasing and the design of
ongoing studies is robust. It is time that this technology is given the
attention it deserves.”
