Abstract: Bioactivity and magnetic properties were investigated in glass and glass ceramics based on the SiO(2)-Na(2)O-Fe(2)O(3)-CaO-P(2)O(5)-B(2)O(3) system to find their suitability as thermoseed for hyperthermia treatment of cancer. The effect of change in compositions on bioactivity was examined in simulated body fluids. The glass ceramic samples exhibit Na(3)CaSi(3)O(8) and Na(3-x)Fe(x)PO(4) phases. After dipping the glass ceramic samples in simulated body fluids silica hydrogel first forms, followed by an amorphous calcium phosphate layer. Magnetic and microwave resonance experiments further demonstrate the potential of these glass ceramics for possible use in hyperthermia. (C) 1999 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
