In a major breakthrough, scientists create a virus that can kill every type of cancer
Scientists from America recently produced a certain type of cowpox virus, which shows a viable result to completely cure cancer.
8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which four million people die prematurely between the age of 30 and 69 years.
Patients diagnosed with triple-negative, breast cancer, lung cancer, bladder, bowel, gastric cancer, and melanoma would be the first one on which the new remedy plan will be implemented.
With increasing number of cases every single day, cancer remains one of the most fatal diseases without any properly developed cure as of yet.
National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research on Cancer found out that 11,57,294 lac new cases of cancer are reported in India every year. 7,84,821 individuals capitulate to the disease in 2018. So far, no treatment for the disease has been developed, therefore risks for cancer grows by a margin.
A group of scientists might have just come close to finding a treatment for cancer by developing a virus that might hold the potential to destroy cancer cells in a petri dish and reduces the tumor in mice. If this works, it might as well be scientific breakthrough that the doctors and patients have been waiting for.
Scientists from America recently produced a certain type of cowpox virus, which shows a viable result to completely cure cancer. The remedy, which has been called “CF33”, destroy every kind of cancer cells.
‘There was evidence that viruses could kill cancer from the early 1900s. It is when people vaccinated against rabies had their cancer disappear, they went into remission.’ Professor Fong said.
However, scientists were worried about the consequences of the viruses, as they can cost humans their life.
“The problem was if you made the virus toxic enough to kill cancer you would probably kill man, “he said.
Meantime, remedy for cancer is also emerging in Australia.
Patients diagnosed with triple-negative, breast cancer, lung cancer, bladder, bowel, gastric cancer, and melanoma would be the first ones on which the cure will be tested. This phase is, what scientists call, the ‘Basket Study’.
However, the success of injected viruses in mice does not guarantee the viruses will be able to treat humans as well. However, Professor Fong is positive about human trials. He believes we are all set for another exhaustive remedy for threatening disorders.
This is certainly good news and hope that we will soon have a cure for cancer.
