Scientists have created a smallpox virus that can cure all cancers.

According to Anh Dailymail newspaper, this method, called CF33 , is capable of destroying all types of cancer when tested in the laboratory and shrinking tumors when tested on mice.

American cancer expert Professor Yuman Fong and Australian biotechnology company Imugene have teamed up to create the virus. They hope the new method could be tested clinically in patients with breast cancer and some other types of cancer next year.

Although successful testing on mice doesn't mean the virus will work in humans, Professor Fong is still optimistic because there have been many viruses that have proven effective in treating cancer in the past. people.

Scientists have turned a common cold virus into a cure for brain cancer. Some patients have completely recovered, while others have markedly smaller tumors.

A modified form of the virus that causes a sore throat called Imlygic or T-Vec is being used to treat melanoma. The virus helps the body's immune system recognize and destroy tumors by finding malignant tumor cells and killing them.

In another case, Australian research associate professor Tom John of Olivia Newton John Cancer Research Institute recently tested a viral treatment in combination with immunotherapy for Keytruda immunotherapy. cancer treatment) in 11 patients with lung cancer. As a result, the tumors of 3 of 11 patients were scaled down.
