Scientists Discover Passive Virus Can Destroy Breast Cancer Cells

Scientists Discover Passive Virus Can Destroy Breast Cancer Cells

Researchers first discovered the benefits of AAV2 in 2005, when they found the virus attacked human papillomavirus (HPV) tumor cells, causing cell death. The scientists will now attempt to harness the path of AAV2, and guide it to force cancer cells to destroy themselves. Thus far, the scientists have learned that the virus kills cancerous cells , and does not touch healthy cells. The next step in the research is to learn exactly how it targets “bad” cells, which will make AAV2 controllable. Since it’s a virus, the body’s natural immune system could easily fight it off before it had the chance to attack the cancerous cells.
