Virus can attack prostate cancer

From CBC News, “Virus can attack prostate cancer” (with video),

Researchers in Alberta have successfully tested a new viral approach to treating prostate cancer in a small number of men.

The study was published in Tuesday’s online issue Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

Dr. Don Morris, an oncologist at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary and his colleagues used a reovirus — a respiratory virus commonly found in the environment — to kill prostate cancer cells.
