Virotherapy for Cancer: Overview, Diagnoses, and Packages for International Patients in 2017

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, a Latvian 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.

Latvia Has Been Using Virotherapy For Cancer Treatment Since The 1960s

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. Nevertheless, Latvia has always been the most prominent country for those interested in virotherapy because of the number of reasons.

Reason 1. The history of Rigvir® can be traced back to 1950-60s. The experience of the practitioners is passed along from one generation to another. That’s why Latvian oncologists managed to build up the reputation of the world’s most experienced virotherapy experts.

Reason 2. Resulting from the above mentioned, Latvia is considered to be an educational hub for all the specialists in the world wishing to adopt virotherapy locally. Yearly Latvia hosts numerous workshops for oncologists from more than 20 countries to teach them the main principles and techniques.

Reason 3. Before your admission to the virotherapy course, your case is thoroughly evaluated by Latvian oncologists. You can be sure that their expertise is equal to the task, and the Chief Oncologist of Latvia is among the definitive decision-makers. It implies individual approach to each patient.

Reason 4. Depending on your health condition and personal preferences, you can complete either an inpatient or outpatient therapy course.

Five Medical Records You Should Collect To Qualify For Virotherapy Cancer Treatment In Latvia

The first step to take is to make sure Rigvir® is able to treat your cancer case. In the following chart, the left column features the types of cancers sensitive to Rigvir®:


Once you have found your cancer type on the chart, it’s high time to collect the medical files for further evaluation by Latvian oncologists. The thing is, some files can be gathered within a couple of days while the others require months to receive. Normally the wait times depend on the country of your residence. The US patients usually manage to gather the documentation within a week while the European ones are likely to spend more time.

Here's the same list of medical reports in case you need to copy/paste it:

  • 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.
