The osmotic fragility of erythrocytes was studied in 24 patients receiving whole-body hyperthermia, with and without concomitant chemotherapy, for 2-4 hours as an adjuvant to chemotherapy for advanced metastatic disease. No alteration in osmotic fragility of erythrocytes was observed with whole-body hyperthermia.
