Tests were realized with 23 patients, while scientists believe that in the future will turn this into a form of therapy. While cancer disease experts have stated that this virus is promising for the treatments of this deadly disease.The use of virus, which attacks cancer cells is not a new concept, but previously have been taken viruses with such skills be injected directly into the tumor, in the order to avoid immune system.While the modification of such viral vaccine, the virus known as JX-594 is injected into the blood of patients suffering from cancer participating in various doses.
Therefore it was noted that this virus replicates (yeast) only the tumor cells and not the healthy ones.The spread of the virus has prevented growth of the tumor, but it did not cured him.Since the doses tested were small, scientists believe the virus can be used for treating cancer cells at greater concentrations informs telegraph.
