We typically associate viruses as being the body’s enemy, but that’s not always the case. Oncolytic viruses are proving to have a remarkable ability to target and kill cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. One particular virus known as myxoma is being researched right now for its unique ability to create autosis, a form of cell destruction particularly useful against solid tumors.
Researchers note that a two-pronged approach — combining existing immunotherapy techniques with oncolytic virotherapy — actually boosts the body’s immune system, while terminating dangerous cancer cells.
