New science: a genetically modified virus that can defeat cancer

New science: a genetically modified virus that can defeat cancer

Scientists have discovered that tumors in terminally ill patients have been excised or shrunk using the groundbreaking new treatment.

Infection with the herpes virus, which also causes mouth ulcers, kills cancer by producing molecules to stimulate the immune system’s response and infecting and destroying the tumor.

The treatment was tested on 39 patients with cancer, including people with tumors of the skin, esophagus and head and neck.

Krzysztof Wojkowski, 39, was diagnosed with a type of salivary gland cancer in May and, after several surgeries, was told there were no treatment options left.

“I received our injections every two weeks for five weeks of the modified virus, which completely eliminated my cancer,” Wojkowski said. “It is a real miracle, there is no other word to describe it.”

“I’ve been able to work as a builder again and spend time with my family, there’s nothing I can’t do,” he added.

According to the “Daily Mail”, the research team hopes to move to larger trials after they presented the study at the European Society of Medical Oncology conference.

“Our study shows that a genetically modified virus can destroy cancer cells,” said study leader Professor Kevin Harrington, professor of biological cancer therapies at the Institute of Cancer Research in London.

The genetically modified “RP2” virus, which is injected directly into tumors, is designed to explode from the inside, and it also prevents a protein known as “CTLA-4” from blocking the capabilities of the immune system and increases its ability to kill cancer cells.

Professor Christian Helen, chief executive of the Institute of Cancer Research London, said: “Viruses are one of humanity’s oldest enemies, as we have all seen during the pandemic, but our new research suggests we can exploit some of their advantages to infect and kill cancer cells.”

He added: “It is a small study, but the initial results are promising. I very much hope that patients will continue to benefit.”
