Sydney: Scientists claim to have found a virus that is capable of killing all types of cancer. It is being seen as a major breakthrough in the medical field. The virus is named Vaccinia CF-33. Currently, more than 100 types of cancer are found worldwide. If any type of cancer is detected in the third or fourth stage, the chances of treatment are greatly reduced. Scientists are now hoping after this success that cancer can be eradicated soon. If everything goes well in the test, then next year it will be tested as medicine on breast cancer patients.
According to the report, it is a virus that causes common cold in the body. But scientists were shocked after infusing it with cancer cells. During the test, the virus eradicated all types of cancer in a Petri dish. After this, scientists have found that even after testing on mice, the virus shrinked the tumor considerably. The virus was created by Australian-based biotech company EmuGen. The credit for making it goes to US scientist and cancer specialist Professor Yuman Fong.
Professor Fong has reported that there is a virus called cowpox, which has been used for the last 200 years to cure the mother and it has not been found to have any side effects on humans. This virus, called cowpox. It has been tried on mice tumors by mixing it with some other viruses. It was observed in the trial that the cancer cells present in the body of the mice became very small by shrinking and their growth also stopped. Professor Fong is preparing for the clinical trial of this virus in Australia itself. Later it will be tested in other countries as well. During this trial, triple-negative breast cancer, melanoma, lung cancer, bladder cancer, stomach cancer will be tested on patients.
