Rigvir® For Cancer Treatment Is A Virus Affecting Only Malignant Cells And Causing No Side Effects

Studies circulating around Rigvir® (short for “Riga virus”) started in the mid-1950’s in Latvia by a microbiologist professor Aina Muceniece. The scientist was the first to discover a cancer-killing feature of the drug with little or no side effects.

After its national registration in Latvia (2004), Georgia (2015) and Armenia (2016), patients from roughly 25 countries around the world have started using Rigvir® to treat:

  • Melanoma
  • Lung cancer
  • Various types of sarcoma
  • Neuroendocrine tumors
  • Glioblastoma
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Colorectal cancer

Rigvir® affects only cancer cells and destroys them from within leaving normal cells untouched. It is stored in vials for future injection. The explanation may be hard to perceive, that’s why we also have a 5-minute video for you to see how Rigvir® works.


What Clinical Trials Say About Rigvir®: Prolonging Life To Melanoma, Lung Cancer And Sarcoma Patients

A medical journal APMIS (Acta Pathologica, Microbiologica et Immunologica Scandinavica) published in July 2016 the results of clinical trials conducted for patients diagnosed with stage IV melanoma with metastases, stage IIIA small cell lung cancer, and stage 4 histiocytic sarcoma. They look as follows:

“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, 7.0, and 6.6 years ago, and their condition has improved and been stable for over 1.5, 6.5, and 4 years, respectively. These observations suggest that virotherapy using Rigvir® can successfully be used in long-term treatment of patients with melanoma stage IV M1c, small cell lung cancer stage IIIA, and histiocytic sarcoma stage IV...”
