They're only in the Phase III trials now, but so far, it looks hopeful.
Abbie has more information and links.
|A modified Herpes Simplex Virus-1. Regular ol HSV-1 that we are basically all infected with, causes cold-sores in some people? Yeah, scientists gutted out some bits of it (keep it from going into neurons, make it need something cancers make lots of), added immune-stimulating bits (a chemical messenger that REALLY pisses off macrophages).|
This modified virus was injected directly into melanoma lesions every two weeks for up to 48 weeks (24 doses). Now, remember these patients were metastatic-- yes, they had 'skin cancer', but that cancer had spread, to the liver/lungs/anywhere.
Even though the virus was injected into the 'skin cancer', the liver lesions, the lung lesions-- they were all killed too. Scientists aspirated where the lesions used to be, and all there was was necrotic tissue (dead cancer).
