+ - Virus safely kills cancer in palliative patients->

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Working with patients who had no alternatives left, these trials with a common virus, administered in combination with other treatments, shrunk inoperable tumors to the point that surgery was possible. The reovirus replicates within the patients body, so that tumors not being directly treated were also arrested in growth, or in some cases, reduced. It appears that the virus is effective in attacking 2/3 of cancers."
