Cancer cells does not shut down when they are infected with this virus. Normal cells, on the other hand, shut down.You can read about this latest research in the journal Molecular Therapy.A virus is a good way to carry anticancer treatment even in a cell. A virus has the ability to go undetected in the cells. The problem for scientists has always been able to provide only the cancer cells and not the good ones.
With such good targeting, the scientists say it is much easier to have highly selective anti-cancer treatment.The scientists are planning to place a toxic gene in the virus so that the toxin can kill cancer cells. As the cancer make more copies of the virus anyway, not so many copies of the virus is first required for effective treatment.
