A RESEARCHER from the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) has succeeded in curing 29 women from the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
The Mexican researcher, Eva Ramon Gallegos, treated the women with photodynamic therapy and through a non-invasive technique.
The IPN confirmed a complete and effective elimination of the virus that could be used as a solution to prevent the tumours.
Mrs. Gallegos has been working for two decades on this photodynamic therapy as an attempt to tackle different types of tumours such as breast and melanoma cancer.
A double dosage of aminolevulin delta acid was applied in two batches during 48 hours with a post-evaluation carried out after.
The virus was 100 per cent eliminated from the women who were HPV carriers without any premalignant lesions of cervical cancer, 64.3 per cent in cases that both HPV and lesions, and 57.2 per cent in those who showed lesions without the infection.
Mrs. Gallegos has reportedly treated another 420 patients in Oaxaca and Veracruz.
The other specialists that collaborated in the investigation were: Marco Antonio Amoroso Hernández, Ángel Laguna Cancino, Dora Estela Jovel Galdamez, Bárbara Carrión Solano, Guadalupe Balderas Martínez; Eduarda Parra Rossana, Ines Castellanos Oliveros, Rosa Linda Bello Leiva, Ma. Eugenia Melo Petrone, Gumaro Narciso Morales y Petrona Jiménez Martínez.
