Oncolytic Virotherapy

Oncolytic Virotherapy is the experimental treatment of cancer patients based on the administration of replication-competent viruses that selectively destroy tumor cells but leave healthy tissue unaffected. Virotherapy is a safe and effective cancer treatment. It improves time to progression, survival and quality of life for cancer patients. Virotherapy is particularly important in the treatment of those cancers types, which are insensitive to radiotherapy or chemotherapy, for example, melanoma.

Oncolytic viruses refer to those viruses that are able to eliminate malignancies by direct targeting and lysis (killing) of cancer cells within the Tumor, leaving non-cancerous cells unharmed. Oncolytic viruses by definition have a natural attraction to cancer cells (tropism), though their safety profile in patients, selectivity and replication competence vary significantly by type and strain of virus.
