New Study Discovers Common Cold Virus Strain Can Effectively Kill Bladder Cancer Cells Completely
5The conclusive results
The conclusive results found that all signs of the disease disappeared which unbelievable news is considering the mammoth damage done by cancer for years. Suddenly the answer stares us in the face, cold virus kills cancer. It could well be the headline of the decade and will certainly rock the medical fraternity. The disease had vanished in all but one of the 14 patients involved. In the remaining 14, there was hard evidence that the cancer cells were killed.
6This can revolutionize cancer treatment
The researchers at the University of Surrey feel that this could now revolutionize cancer treatment and decrease the risk of it recurring by a huge extent. One of the charities for bladder cancer found the study extremely exciting and obviously so because imagine how many thousands would benefit from something like this if made viable and commercially available for people.
7What the figures say
The 10th most common cancer in the UK presently is non-muscle invasive bladder cancer and there are around 10,000 cases every year. Worldwide statistics show that almost 75% of bladder cancers are non-muscle invasive cancers out of which 50% of NMIBC patients who are treated with transurethral resection (TUR) have a recurrence of the disease. 5–25% of such patients will progress to muscle-invasive disease after repeated recurrences. Current treatments for this type of bladder cancer are invasive or can cause serious, toxic side effects.
8What is non muscle invasive bladder cancer?
Non muscle invasive bladder cancer is a cancer of the bladder affecting tissues that line the bladder surface. The muscles of the bladder are not involved. It is the 6th most common cancer in the USA and it is projected that almost 81,000 people will be diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2019. Bladder cancer is common more in males than in females where four times men are likely to acquire the disease than women.
