Virus shows cancer-killing abilities

The Seneca Valley Virus-001 (SVV-001) has been shown effective in treating lines of cells from small-cell lung cancer and some pediatric cancers, as well as lung cancer and eye cancer in immune-deficient mice.

People started noticing the virus's effects on cancer up to 100 years ago; however, its cancer-killing potential was only recently confirmed. This discovery represents an important and promising new approach to very serious forms of cancer!
