Step 1 for Rigvir® in Canada - Free Evaluation of Your Case

Virotherapy for Canadian patients is available on the coast of the Baltic Sea

Rigvir® (abbreviated from Riga virus) is an oncolytic virus, which was developed in the middle of the 20th century to destroy cancer cells in human bodies. Its principle of operation is quite simple: the virus is injected into the muscle to scan your organism for cancer cells. After finding the malignant cells it penetrates there and annihilates them from inside. Rigvir® also triggers the immune system leveraging its potential to fight the tumor.

 A specific feature of Rigvir® lies in the absence of side effects (except for a slight increase in body temperature – 37.5°C or 99.5°F). Surrounding tissues remain unaffected. Unlike other viruses, Rigvir® is non-pathogenic meaning it doesn’t result in any other illness. Your oncologist can recommend virotherapy as an individual treatment, or combine it with chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Rigvir® was registered in Latvia in 2004, and later on, it became officially recognized in Georgia (2015) and Armenia (2016). Being a home country to Rigvir® treatment, Latvian virotherapy centers have already shared their experience with specialists from more than 20 countries.

Rigvir treatment in Canada isn’t widely available even though the demand is increasing each year. However, you may get Rigvir® straight to your doorsteps after completing a week long virotherapy treatment course at Global Virotherapy Cancer Treatment in Jurmala, Latvia.

Your cancer case is like no other. That’s why you get an evaluation of your case at no charge before starting the treatment. For free assessment you should provide the following medical documentation:

  • Full blood count made no longer than 2 weeks ago, including White Blood Cells
  • Radiological analyses – Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging etc.
  • Biochemical analysis, incorporating creatinine findings and alanine transferase
  • Histopathological and cytological findings
  • Medical report
