As for the mode of action, Rigvir® enters a human body through intramuscular injections. Being specifically designed to target cancer cells, Rigvir®:

  • reaches and destroys them from the inside;
  • doesn’t affect healthy cells located around the tumor;
  • causes no side effects except for slightly higher than usual body temperature (37.5° C);
  • is often used to prevent or get rid of metastases.

You Can Qualify For Rigvir® Treatment Once You Collect The Required Medical Reports

The 20th century has been marked with an invention made by Aina Muceniece, a Latvian scientist, who unveiled a virus ECHO-7 able to destroy cancer cells. The drug is now called Rigvir®, abbreviated from Riga virus, and is a nonpathogenic virus. It means that the virus injections will not cause any diseases.

There are two steps for you to take to find out whether you are eligible for Rigvir® treatment: find your cancer type on the list and collect your medical files. 

For your convenience, the list can be copied:

  • Biopsy (or pathology) report
  • Cytology report
  • CBC (complete blood count) + WBC (white blood cells) not older than 2 weeks
  • Blood biochemistry incl. ALT (alanine aminotransferase), creatinine, etc.
  • Radiology reports (actual images are not needed)

Once all the files are provided, it takes 2-3 business days for the team of oncologists and immunologists in Latvia to evaluate it. The assessment is necessary because it shows if virotherapy can improve your health condition.
