Abstract

In developed countries, oncological diseases are the second most common cause of mortality after cardiovascular diseases; however, they are likely to become the number one cause of death in the near future, as it has already happened in Japan. The reason is that the main causes of cardiovascular pathologies are well known, and the modern medicine has ways to tackle many of them. The situation with oncological diseases is more complicated: there are a number of genetic and ecological causes of cancer, and prevention in the most of the cases is still impossible; besides, there are no efficient methods of treatment for a number of tumors. At first, the idea of using viruses against tumors may seem absurd, because the very word “virus” conjures up illness. But take a closer look, and the idea looks promising, as long as we make sure that only cancer cells get attacked by viruses
