Can polio virus poison a tumor? Saw an ad on TV.

Posted by @morris, May 13, 2016

just saw an ad on tv; it said that some one had discovered a way to insert the polio virus into a tumor and it would poison the tumor. can mayo clinic do this for my tumor that is under my bladder where the prostate was; before it was cut out because it was cancer I currently get a hormone shot in the belly fat every 6 months. the prostate was cut out in 1997.

I saw that on the newscast last night and I believe they said it was for brain tumors?? I imagine eventually it will cover all types of cancer. Keep the faith, it will happen.

I am a stage 4 melanoma survivor…right now IMLYGIC™ (Talimogene Laherparepvec) As First Oncolytic Viral Therapy was recently approved ( aka Oncovex ) by the FDA and it is made from a Herpes Virus. Currently Duke University is conducting clinical trials using the polio virus for glioblastoma, a very aggressive form of brain cancer. They have found 20% of the people in the trial have a 3 year survival rate. They can not use it for other cancers until clinical trials are approved for testing it.

Recently the combination of Yervoy/Opdivo has been shown to shrink prostate cancer and other cancers. I did Opdivo infusions for 30 months and have been NED (no evidence of disease). Considering Mayo gave me 5-6 months to live in 2009…I would consider myself blessed!! It has been approved for several cancer so far. It is also known as Nivolumab.
