Oncolytic virotherapy for cancer treatment
Viral therapy is based on the viruses that are converted into a therapeutic agent by biotechnological reprogramming. The virus has oncolytic ability to search for malignant cells in the body and destroy them. Oncolytic virotherapy damages cancer cells not affecting healthy tissues. In this way, the viral therapy acts similar to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Amberlife Cancer Clinic specialists apply virotherapy for the following diseases:
- stomach cancer
- colorectal cancer
- pancreatic cancer
- kidney cancer
- uterine cancer
- bladder cancer
- lung cancer
- prostate cancer
- several types of sarcoma.
Is it safe?
The virus targets only cancer cells and doesn't affect the healthy ones.
Unlike the radio- or chemotherapy which suppress immunity, the virus reinforces it and has minimal side effects.
Viruses do not integrate into DNA and don't have any risk of mutations.
Virotherapy is also an option for destroying tumors resistant to radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Viral therapy can be applied as an independent method or in combination with other cancer treatments such as surgery, chemo- and radiotherapy.
