On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio program we’ll talk about the groundbreaking research involving the measles virus to fight cancer. The process is called oncolytic virotherapy and Dr. Stephen Russell will be our guest, along with his patient Stacy Erholtz who received 10 million doses – a seemingly lethal amount – of the measles virus to treat her multiple myeloma. We’ll hear more about the science behind virus therapy and learn where future research might be headed. Are there other diseases that could be cured by using viruses? Where did all those doses of measles vaccine come from? It’s a remarkable development in the future of medicine.
