Cancer-killing virus shows promise in patients | BBC

Must Read

Early human trials of a novel cancer therapy that employs a typical virus to infect and eradicate cancerous cells have shown great promise, according to UK researchers.

While other patients’ tumors shrank, one patient’s cancer completely disappeared. The medication is a herpes simplex virus that has been altered to kill tumors in a weaker, less potent form. The injection may ultimately provide a lifeline to more people with advanced cancers, according to specialists, but larger and longer research will be required. A participant in the continuing phase one safety trial being conducted by the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is 39-year-old builder Krzysztof Wojkowski of west London. His salivary gland carcinoma, which is located close to the mouth, was discovered in 2017. At the time, his cancer spread despite surgery and various therapies.
