Virtus develops GRT to cure chronic diseases

Abstract:
A research collaboration of Virtus Techno Innovations, a research and development company associated with Mumbai-based Khandelwal Laboratories, Reliance Life Sciences and SRL Ranbaxy, has succeeded in developing a novel nanotechnology-based Gene Repair Therapy (GRT) that can revolutionise treatments for various chronic diseases such as AIDS, cancer, diabetes etc. Apart from curing diseases, it can also help in reversing the ageing process.

Named as Mitsanika, the new GRT therapy activates dead or inactive genes in human body by using water as a medium to absorb the required minerals and metals that can rejuvenate and activate the genes.

The breakthrough was achieved through mimicking the experience of the fetus while floating in the amniotic fluid, said Dr V K Tripathi, chief executive officer of Virtus, who heads a team of 20 scientists who did the research on GRT for over 11 years.
