POLIO VIRUS SHOWING PROMISE IN KILLING CANCER
Did anyone catch the 60 MINUTES Documentary Sunday, March 29, 2015? Duke University’s Cancer Research Department has found – of all things – the POLIO VIRUS showing promise in killing cancer specifically the brain tumor – glioblastoma!
Yes, the POLIO VIRUS that scientists and researchers are trying to eradicate from the world is being used successfully in KILLING CANCER!
Correspondent Scott Pelly presents the cancer research findings from this CLINICAL STUDY. They appear to be very promising for curing many cancers!
Traditionally, in the last few centuries cancer has been treated by three methods: SURGERY, CHEMOTHERAPY, and RADIATION. However, in the past decade many researchers are focusing more funds on treating cancers with a new method called IMMUNOTHERAPY.
Immunotherapy is our body’s ability to use “treatment to stimulate or restore our immune (defense) system to fight infection and disease.” Thus, by triggering our immune system to respond to fight back against these infections and diseases, we can prompt our body’s ability to attack and kill the cancer cells.
Dr. Henry Friedman (Duke’s Deputy Director of the Brain Tumor Center) in all his 34 years of research states, “…this is the most promising therapy I’ve seen in my career, period…”
Dr. Darell Bigner (Head of the Study and Duke’s Brain Tumor Center) has been fighting cancer for 50 years. He has not seen the positive results like those seen in STEPHANIE LIPSCOMB and FRITZ ANDERSON – the first and second patients to receive the polio virus in the CLINCIAL STUDY.
Dr. Matthias Gromeier a molecular biologist, has worked hard many years on this research project. He chose to experiment with the POLIO VIRUS over other viruses. (Other cancer researchers are experimenting with different viruses including HIV, SMALL POX, and MEASLES.)
Below are some noted facts from the 60 MINUTES DOCUMENTARY – “KILLING CANCER” with POLIO IMMUNOTHERAPY:
- Dr. Gromeier “re-engineered” the POLIO VIRUS to prevent it from causing paralysis or death but yet still produce TOXINS that poison the cancer cells.
- Seven years of safety studies have been performed on 39 monkeys to prove they did not get POLIO.
- In 2011, the FDA approved a safety trial so they could experiment with the Polio Virus for humans.
- 20 year old Stephanie Lipscomb is the first patient to receive this initial treatment for glioblastoma and continues to be in remission three years and counting.
- To have this type of success in the Phase 1 study of research is extraordinary.
- 22 patients have entered this POLIO study. Eleven are still living and 11 have died. Most of the 11 who have died had the higher dose of the polio vaccine but still lived months farther than expected. (Unfortunately, the 11 were part of the trial and error process.)
- The following cancers have been tested in a laboratory dish with success: lung cancers, breast cancers, colorectal cancers, prostate cancers, pancreatic cancers, liver cancers, and renal cancers.
- With great success in the POLIO STUDY, this treatment continues with optimism but CAUTION.
- IN ABOUT A YEAR, THE FDA IS EXPECTED TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT TO GRANT DUKE “BREAKTHROUGH STATUS”. IF GRANTED, the treatment would be AVAILABLE TO MORE PATIENTS SOONER and therefore FOR MORE CLINICAL STUDYS.
- About 12,000 Americans die each year from glioblastoma.
Research has shown in the past that cancer cells appear to grow in a protected environment within our bodies. Researchers have found that our immune systems seem to “ignore” these cancer cells. It “appears” as if our bodies form a protected layer around the cancer to allow it to grow. This protective layer allows the cancer to continue to grow uncontrollably which allows the cancer to overtake our body’s healthy cells.
Thus, by injecting the RE-ENGINEERED POLIO VIRUS into the cancer tumor, it stimulates our body’s immune system to attack the polio virus. Once our bodies recognize where the polio virus is located, it sends our body’s defense antibodies to the location of the polio, attacks it, and kills it. Because the Polio Virus is surrounding the cancer cells, our body’s defensive antibodies will also attack and kill the cancer cells as it kills the polio virus.

Research continues to show great promise with immunotherapy. I for one will continue to watch this evolution with great hope and optimism. I truly believe God has given us the keys, we just have to find the correct lock on the door and open it.
And As Always …MARCH FORTH!”
