Spending hours googling about virotherapy for melanoma without a clue as to how you will benefit from it? Wondering if you can be qualified as a candidate for virotherapy? Looking for the Rigvir® cost estimates to treat melanoma, its survival rates, and availability? 

If so, you are on the right page. Let’s dot your i’s and cross your t’s to help you make an informed decision about treating your melanoma with Rigvir®.

What does science say about virotherapy for melanoma?

Findings published in 2002 in Acta medica Lituanica, a peer-reviewed medical journal:

The 3-year survival rate for melanoma patients treated with surgery only was 46-58%, while patients that were also treated with Rigvir® had a 3-year survival rate of 57-84% and a 5-year survival rate of 44-66%.

Findings published in October 2015 in Melanoma Research, a peer-reviewed medical journal:

An oncolytic, nonpathogenic ECHO-7 virus adapted for melanoma that has not been genetically modified (Rigvir®) is approved and registered for virotherapy, an active and specific immunotherapy, in Latvia since 2004… These results indicate that the patients treated with Rigvir® had a 4.39–6.57-fold lower mortality than those under observation… In conclusion, Rigvir® significantly prolongs survival in early-stage melanoma patients without any side effect.

Findings published in July 2016 in APMIS (Acta Pathologica, Microbiologica et Immunologica Scandinavica), a peer-reviewed medical journal:

All patients started Rigvir® treatment within a few months after being diagnosed and are currently continuing Rigvir® treatment… Using current standard treatments, the survival of patients with the present diagnoses is low. In contrast, the patients described here were diagnosed 3.5… years ago, and their condition has improved and been stable for over 1.5… years…These observations suggest that virotherapy using Rigvir® can successfully be used in long-term treatment of patients with melanoma stage IV M1c...

How does virotherapy for melanoma patients look like?

Because Rigvir® has been discovered and registered in Latvia, this is what makes most melanoma patients seek treatment near the Baltic Sea. The medical team representing Rigvir in Latvia has developed a complex virotherapy package for a number of diagnoses including melanoma.
