Let us take as given, finally in and by 2016, that PV-10 (chemical small [but heavy] molecule and halogenated xanthene Rose Bengal) is an immunotherapy

That is, the investigational compound is potentially capable of inducing the human body's immune system to mount a possibly worthy defense against solid tumor cancer after first being injected into lesions and tumors of said cancer.

That PV-10 has been independently shown to be that immunotherapy, at arms length from Provectus separately by both Moffitt Cancer Center (Moffitt) and the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) — reproducibility, the hallmark of Western Science— should make the claims about and data on PV-10 that much more veracious. See footnotes 1-5 below.

But let's now examine the notion, and growing preclinical and clinical evidence, that PV-10 treatment — singularly or in combination — potentially may lead to something greater and more profound than just the inducement or generation of an immune response....immunity.
