Scientists begin the testing of Cancer-killing virus


Potentially, we are talking about a revolution in medicine

Information about a potential breakthrough in science has appeared on the Web. The thing is that the first phase of clinical trials of the new method of fighting advanced cancer has started in the United States.

The key feature of the method is the use of a specially bred virus. Scientists infect cancer cells with it and make them more susceptible to the work of the immune system.

The first phase of the trial involves 100 patients. All of them have metastatic tumors. First, they will be injected with the virus, after which they will begin a course of immunotherapy.

It is reported that in preclinical trials, this method has shown excellent results. Including in the fight against colon, lung, breast and ovarian cancer in animals.

The estimated time frame for the mass introduction of the new methodology remains unknown.
