Clinical trials section needs work[edit]

It's out of date. Needs updating and possibly restructuring by cancer type ? - Rod57 (talk) 15:14, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I agree, it's very out-of-date. 99.235.250.152 (talk) 09:39, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Written like an advertisement??[edit]

There is a banner claiming that this is written like an advertisement. The drug Reolysin is purely at an experimental phase right now and IT IS NOT APPROVED FOR SALE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, so it is certainly not being advertised. The National Cancer Institute in the USA and the National Cancer Institute in Canada are both conducting large clinical trials of this agent, and putting up roughly $40M or so of funding for these trials. So I think it is reasonable to assume that the science for this experimental agent looks encouraging (as of Oct 2012) and that the article simply reflects this fact. 99.235.250.152 (talk) 22:13, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Looks ok now so have removed the {{advert}}. - Rod57 (talk) 13:27, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
