Virotherapy for Cancer: Overview, Diagnoses, and Packages for International Patients in 2017

Virotherapy was discovered thanks to Aina Muceniece, a Latvian immunologist, who conducted her research in the middle of 20th century. She managed to find a virus ECHO-7 produced in intestines of babies, which became the basis of Riga virus (briefly called Rigvir®). In a next decade, it’s healing effect was successfully proved due to Rigvir® treatment of people with melanoma.

Some patients who were treated by Aina Muceniece directly, are still living and thriving. They highlight her individual approach to every patient’s health generally, and to the frequency of injections in particular. This principle has become the basis of work of the world’s most prominent virotherapy cancer treatment center - Global Virotherapy Cancer Clinic in Jurmala, Latvia.

Rigvir® has demonstrated its efficiency in healing different types of sarcomas (reticulosarcoma, angiosarcoma, lymphosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma etc) as well as cancers that affect:

  • kidneys 
  • prostate 
  • skin 
  • rectum
  • pancreas
  • bladder 
  • uterus
  • breast 
  • ovaries
  • etc

 According to the latest study published in October 2015, virotherapy cancer treatment reduces mortality of patients in 4-6 times.
