Last night, the American TV newsmagazine, 60 Minutes, aired a remarkable two-part report about a Phase I trial at Duke University. They’ve developed a modified polio virus that has seen some success in treating glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer.
In the lab, this oncolytic virus has also worked against lung, pancreatic, colorectal, and other solid-mass malignancies.
Interestingly, this was also reported by ABC News back in 2013. These reports tend to pass by people until it becomes personal.
