Virotherapy for Cancer: Overview, Diagnoses, and 7-Day Package for International Patients in Germany

Whether or not you have previously undergone chemo or radiotherapy to fight the unexpected disease, you can use virotherapy, mainly represented by Riga virus (briefly called Rigvir®) to sustain the achieved results, to get rid of metastases, or to supplement the conventional treatment.

Virotherapy was discovered thanks to Aina Muceniece, an 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 Rigvir®. In the next decade, its healing effect was successfully proved due to Rigvir® treatment of melanoma patients.

What Are The Success Rates Of The Patients Who Had Virotherapy For Cancer?

The first clinical trials can be traced back to the 1960s, when 415 melanoma patients agreed to test Rigvir® for efficacy. The results received proved that survival rates of these patients have increased.

Let’s take a look at the results published in reliable course, a medical journal Melanoma Research, in October 2015:

“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…

Moreover, results of the research published in July 2016 in APMIS (Acta Pathologica, Microbiologica et Immunologica Scandinavica), a peer-reviewed medical journal 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… 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 Germany Has Become Must-Visit Destination For Virotherapy For Cancer Treatment Since 2000

Although the treatment was invented in the 1960s, since then it has been registered in 3 countries — Latvia (2005), Georgia (2015), and Armenia (2016). Nevertheless, if you’re looking for more information about alternative medicine in general and virotherapy cancer treatment in particular on the Internet, you can easily find several clinics in the world that provide it. However, Germany has become one of the most prominent countries for those interested in virotherapy because of the number of reasons.

Reason 1. The family of 2 German practitioners opened the clinic in Brannensburg in 2000, but before that they have gained experience with hundreds of patients. Moreover, since the establishment of the clinic they managed to help 3,000 patients to overcome the disease.

Reason 2. Cancer is a disease of both body and mind — doctors from the clinic admit. That’s why arriving to Germany means not only having bare virotherapy, but combining it with other therapies to relieve pain, boost the immune system, and just have a rest. These therapies include:

Detox, purifying organism from toxins

Acupuncture, needle-inserting therapy to activate body defense system and blood flow

Minimally-invasive surgery to remove the tumour with limited number and size of cuts

Buserelin therapy to regulate the doze of reproductive hormones and fight prostate and breast cancer

Local hyperthermia to direct the warmth into malignant cells in a specific way, so they'll target themselves and get destroyed.

Want to know more about all of them? Press the red button, ask your question — and we’ll respond within 24 hours, but usually much sooner.

Reason 3. Before your admission to the virotherapy course, your case is thoroughly evaluated by German oncologists. You can be sure that their expertise is equal to the task, and they apply individual approach to each patient.

Find Your Diagnosis On The List and Submit Five Medical Records To Qualify For Virotherapy Cancer Treatment In Germany

If you’re now convinced about the necessity to start virotherapy, the first step for you to take is to make sure it’s able to treat your cancer case. In the following list, there are types of cancer vulnerable to Rigvir®:

  • Melanoma

Once you have found your cancer type on the roster, it’s high time for you to collect the medical files for further evaluation by German oncologists. The thing is, some files can be gathered within a couple of days while the others require months to receive. Sometimes it depends on the region you live: the USA citizens usually manage to gather the documentation within a week, and the European are likely to spend more time. Make sure you’ve collected:

  • Cytology report
  • Biopsy or pathology records
  • Complete blood count including white blood cells (made no longer than 2 weeks ago)
  • Radiology report
  • Biochemistry of blood: ALT, creatinine etc.

The evaluation time is usually 2–3 working days. Regardless of the positive or negative conclusion, you’ll be notified as soon as the estimation results are ready.
