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)

Whether you are searching for Rigvir for breast cancer or kidney cancer, the applying process is always the same. 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.
