According to the study published in the journal Clinical Cancer Research, the virus has infected cancer cells and replicated itself, causing cells to burst and die.
Cold: Virus strain could help in curing bladder cancer. New research by an Indian scientist has shown that the virus can infect and damage bladder cancer cells. Researchers from the University of Surrey in the UK examined the safety and potential to tolerate exposure to coxsackie virus, the cancer-killing virus. CVA21
NMIBC is generally found in the tissue of the inner surface of the bladder. It is the tenth most common cancer in the United Kingdom, with around 10,000 people infected with the disease every year.
During the research, 15 patients referred to by an Indian scientist were given Coxsackievirus via a bladder catheter. It was performed one week before the planned surgery to remove their tumors. After the diagnosis of tissue samples, after surgery found that the virus was highly selective, that only concentrated

According to the study published in the journal Clinical Cancer Research
- it was found that the cancer cells were infected with the virus
- which simulated itself and ultimately caused the cells to break and die [Urinesamples
The patient's urine samples were collected every other day. It was found that the samples "broke away" from the virus, suggesting that the newly cloned virus continued to target more cancerous cells present in the organ following the death of virus-infected cancer cells.
Hardev Pandha, a professor at Surrey University, said that NMIBC (non-invasive bladder cancer) is a widespread disease that requires an intrusive and, most of the time, a long treatment plan. Pandha further said that ongoing treatment is not very effective and toxic to some patients. However, there is an urgent need for fresh and new therapies.
Hardev Pandha stated that CVA21 or coxsackievirus may help in the transformation of bladder cancer treatment. However, the following signs and symptoms have been observed in patients:
- Reduction in tumor burden
- Increase in cell death in cancer
- All signs of disease have been removed in one patient
The most surprising fact This all happened within one week of treatment , which showed the potential effectiveness. In addition, no adverse reaction was observed in any of the patients.
