Measles Virus vs Cancer: Mayo Clinic Radio

December 1, 2014

This week we rebroadcast a conversation with two of our favorite guests this year - Stacy Erholtz and  Stephen Russell, M.D.. Stacy's been involved in groundbreaking research at Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Russell, which uses the measles virus to fight cancer. Stacy shares her story about receiving 10 million doses – a seemingly lethal amount – of the measles virus to treat her multiple myeloma. It's called oncolytic virotherapy, and Dr. Russell discusses the science behind virus therapy. He talks about where future research might be headed, are there other diseases that could be cured by using viruses and where did all those doses of measles vaccine come from?
