Invisible virus is being evaluated as the next generation of compassionate cancer cures
August 10, 2012



The investigative FOXNews journalists caught up with the clinicians, nurses and researchers at California Veterinary Specialists Angel Care Cancer Center to learn how an invisible virus is being evaluated as the next generation of compassionate cancer cures in dogs, cats and people. Angel Care Cancer Center, a separate but allied non-profit research organization, the Special Care Foundation for Companion Animals and the San Diego based company Genelux have teamed up to affirm the safety an efficacy of a new cancer killing virus. The therapy includes a modification of a virus that has been used worldwide to wipe out smallpox as a threat to human health. Families who bring their beloved pets with cancer to Angel Care seek the highest level of advanced yet gentle cancer care and novel, new therapies that are likely to become the therapies of the future. The purpose of the study is to determine the optimum way of treating these dogs with cancer while taking these results to develop new approaches to enhance the cure rates in children and adults.

The CVS Angel Care Cancer Center is a comprehensive cancer center that provides direct care for patients with cancer and their families. This team offers innovative clinical research to provide the very best diagnostics and treatments available to fight against cancer. They are a group of veterinarians, veterinary nurses, and human physicians that share a mutual philosophy: science may provide a cure, but compassionate care comes from the heart. The goal is to do everything possible to not only win the fight against cancer, but to ensure the treatment is healing, not hurting.
