Cancer Killing Virus Discovered

The medical world could realize a major breakthrough in defeating Cancer.  AOL’s Daily Finance interviewed CEO, Dr. Brad Thompson, of Calgary-based biotechnology company, Oncolytics Biotech regarding the founding his company.  The company was founded on the trail to making the remarkable cancer treatment that involves infecting patients with a harmless virus called a reovirus (Respiratory Enteric Orphan virus).  The virus, for some reason, likes to grow in and kill cancer cells rather than living in normal tissue.

Thomas explained that the virus is a noxious entity in the body, bypassing normal tissues to find its way to the cancer cells and wipe them out.  He told Daily Finance, “the body mounts a normal immune response to the infection. Normally, the latest we ever find the virus in the body is a couple of weeks after the first injection, and then it’s completely gone.”

Thompson says his company is beginning Phase 3 trials “for a marketable cancer treatment based on this technology in two years.”  This treatment could result in the biggest medical discovery of the 21st century.  Read more here.

  1. I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.
