New U.S. trial starting?

Postby washingtonmike » Fri Nov 22, 2013 1:15 pm

I've found only this scant information about a new trial using the common cold virus. Thought I would share it. Cheers, Mike

Interesting... I read a while back (in the Guardian I think) about a trial in Sweden using virus's as a way of treating cancer generally (not just pancreatic). They quoted some historical (possibly anecdotal?) evidence where people have caught various kinds of virus and then found themselves "cured" of cancer.

So, this is an interesting development!!

Hi Folks: Someone sent me the link to the actual study which is here:

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01280058?

It's still open and accepting patients, will run for another year+. Cheers, Mike
