So awhile back, we told you the miraculous story of Dr. Anderson & how he was able to beat a rare form of The Big C with a very clever proxy-war.
-Using a virus.
Just the way giving yourself Malaria actually cures Syphilis. Especially if you love the crazy.
Well buckle your seatbelts ladies, because the chessmasters of medicine have done it again and freaking WON! against another rare form of cancer.
Dr. Stephen Russell and his team injected a patient suffering from Multiple Myeloma with a megadose of modified Measles virus, equivalent to a vaccination-dosage for about 10 million people.
The measles virii then turned on the other disease, infecting It, picking it apart & destroying it. After this, the immune system can identify the previous bad stuff a little better & then clean up the battlefield.
In addition to the virotherapy idea and the individual’s particular immune-system quirks, the doctors had modified this particular strain so it would be even more effectively-toxic to this form of cancer than standard Measles.
The patient, Stacy Erholtz, has had Total remission of the disease at every single site in her body and has been completely clear for 9 months, after which she was successfully treated with radiation for a single-site recurrence.
Though virotherapy has been used before, this is the First time that the “One Disease Can Kill Another” thesis has been used successfully for killing this particular widely-dispersed type of the disease outside mouse-trials in a lab.
–Oh yeah; And the best part? The Mayo Clinic is going to develop more customized viruses to fight even more cancers,
-And they’re running an even bigger trial of the measles solution later-on, and you can contact them Here.
