Treatment of glioblastoma with oncolytic viruses
Glioblastoma is considered an extremely dangerous brain tumor, and when using traditional methods of treatment (such as surgery or chemoradiation therapy), the prognosis is disappointing: life expectancy usually does not exceed 2 years.
In his interview, Professor Slavin gives hope to all patients with this disease, as he talks about the possibility of an exclusive treatment method – immunotherapy with oncolytic viruses.
This is an innovation in oncology – the use of special viruses that cause the immune system to destroy the tumor. The professor talks in detail about the possibilities and rules of using such therapy, and also reports on his newest discovery – a virus strain that is capable of destroying any type of cancer.
