The aim is to elucidate the scientific background of therapeutic actions and to promote effective new applications at the beginning of the 21st century. Significant to these purposes is cooperation between experts in the fields of thermal biology, hyperthermic oncology, rheumatology, and balneology. Extract from the table of contents: temperature effects on body function: physiology and pathophysiology (heat and cold stress, special aspects of thermoregulatory adjustment: the concept of selective brain cooling; immunological implications of thermal stress and fever: endocrine responses to heat and cold stress); hyperthermic oncology (molecular and cellular responses to thermal stress; current status and future prospects); heat therapy of chronic inflammatory/degenerative diseases, trauma and pain.
