The virus that kills cancer cells was tested on patients as part of a study. According to the results of the research conducted by scientists, all cancerous cells of a patient were destroyed. In other patients, a reduction in the size of cancerous tumors was observed.
Virus Killing Cancer Cells Resulted Positive
According to the news, a very important research has been done on the virus that can destroy cancer cells. The results of the research carried out were also shared. According to the information conveyed, very promising results were obtained in the first trials.
A new type of cancer treatment has been developed that attacks and destroys cancerous cells. According to the information shared by scientists in the United Kingdom, all cancerous cells of a cancer patient disappeared. The cancer cells of other people participating in the study shrank.
It was stated that the virus that destroys cancer cells is a weakened form of herpes virus. Within the scope of the study, in which about 40 patients participated, some patients were directly injected with the cold virus called herpes, which normally causes herpes.
Krzysztof Wojkowski, 39, who lives in London, the capital of England, is among the volunteers participating in the study. Wojkowski was diagnosed with cancer of the salivary glands years ago
After being diagnosed with cancer, Wojkowski underwent various surgeries and received some treatments, but despite all this, he could not beat the cancer. On the other hand, the cancer disease has progressed further during this time.
All of the cancerous cells in Krzysztof Wojkowski’s body were cleared thanks to the virus treatment. Stating that he was given an injection for two weeks, Wojkowski said that the treatment process lasted for five weeks in total, two years have passed since then and there are no cancerous cells in his body anymore.
It was stated that the needles were applied directly to the tumor. The virus first reaches the cancerous cells through the needle, and then wraps around the tumor and explodes it. It then manages to activate the immune system.
The study, conducted by the Cancer Research Institute of the Royal Marsden Foundation of the National Health Service (NHS), is promising for cancer disease. In fact, it was observed that the tumors shrank in the third of nine patients who were treated only with the virus.
Positive results were seen in seven of the 30 patients who continued to take cancer medication. It was also stated that some side effects, including fatigue, were felt very mildly.
