      Like many others, it is a mysterious drug of which little seems to be known. I see that it's promoters make all of the usual claims. It affects cancer cells while leaving normal cells untouched. Hmmmm. Since cancer cells have proteins on their surfaces that are products of the myriad of possible genetic translocations, this must be one super-intelleigent drug. I wonder what the EU says about it? I would say that, if one was wealthy, and all medical options had been exercised, and no hope was left, this might be a last gasp measure to consider.

      I've been looking into alternative therapies as adjuncts to conventional treatment for pancreatic cancer, and came across rigvir info. I'm actively looking for info on it now, and most of the success stories I found were in use of rigvir to treat melanoma. Info for and against has been mainly anecdotal, but if it were for myself, I'd be trying it. Note- one reason it may not have gone mainstream a lot sooner is that it was developed behind the then Iron Curtain. I will be contacting Johns Hopkins, Sloan Kettering and MD Anderson today to ask about it
