Cuba could soon be using magnetotherapy to treat pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) across the national health system, following positive results from a trial of a "local magnetic stimulator" developed by the national applied electromagnetism centre (CNEA). A study of some 300 women treated with the NAK-02 device in combination with a pharmacological regime is said to have shown "greater curative effect (a rapid reduction in pain, fever and other discomfort), in less time and without adverse reactions" than alternative regimens. The Santiago de Cuba-based CNEA's device was trialled at the city's Hospital Materno Tamara Bunke, in a project headed by Dr Carlos Corral. An estimated 70% of Cuban women of fertile age are said to have had some form of PID. Cuba has the manufacturing capacity to meet national demand for the device, according to the ACN news agency.
