Here is some research from the folks at The James regarding the use of a deadly life form, a virus, along with a cancer targeting agent to kill cancer cells. This is a creation of a hunter-killer approach to cancer treatment and therapy.
Giving low doses of a particular targeted agent with a cancer-killing virus might improve the effectiveness of the virus as a treatment for cancer, according to a study led by researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).
Viruses designed to kill cancer cells are being used in clinical trials to treat brain cancer and other malignancies.

The findings support the testing of this combination therapy in a clinical trial.
