SKorean scientists say cancer-killing virus developed
The new therapy developed by the team from Yonsei University uses a genetically-engineered form of the adenovirus, which normally causes colds. Following three rounds of injections, more than 90 percent of cancer cells in the brains, liver, lungs and womb of mice disappeared within 60 days, the team said. Clinical tests will be carried out early next year and last 18 months.
