BERGUES CABRALES, Luis  y  GOMEZ LUNA, Liliana. La electroterapia: una alternativa terapéutica para el tratamiento de tumores. Rev cubana med [online]. 2003, vol.42, n.6. ISSN 0034-7523.

Electrotherapy is the therapy with low intensity direct electric current. It is used in medicine as a therapeutic alternative to treat tumors, its cost is low and its adverse effects are minimum. In different in vitro and in vivo studies, it has been showed the marked antitumoral effect of the direct electric current. The complete regression (or cure) of tumors is achieved in many cases. The direct electric current potentiates the antineoplastic action of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and reduces the side effects that they induce in the organism. The most important results obtained in the treatment of tumors, its antineoplastic and side effects, as well as its possible mechanisms of action have been summarized in this bibliographic review.
