“Ampligen has been shown in numerous earlier studies to possess both tumor-killing and immuno-modulating activity, the two characteristics that form the basis of immuno-oncology therapy. This is developing into one of the fastest growing and promising forms of cancer treatment,” noted Thomas K. Equels, CEO of Hemispherx.
