Is the Common Cold the Key to Beating Bladder Cancer?

British researchers say that the common cold can kill bladder cancer cells.

A small study out of the University of Surrey found one strain of the cold completely eliminated cancer in one patient, and killed off several cancer cells in others. The virus left healthy cells in tact and no significant side effects were observed.

The team says this find could help revolutionize treatment for cancer patients, as current treatments are toxic or ineffective in many cases.
