Oncolytic Virotherapy - Where Are We Going?

Oncolytic Virotherapy - Where Are We Going? | Virology and Bioinformatics from Virology.ca | Scoop.it
The last few years have seen an increased interest in immunotherapy in the treatment of malignant disease. In particular, there has been significant enthusiasm for oncolytic virotherapy, with a large amount of pre-clinical data showing promise in animal models in a wide range of tumour types. How do we move forward into the clinical setting and translate something which has such potential into meaningful clinical outcomes?

Oncolytic virotherapy for ovarian cancer

Oncolytic virotherapy for ovarian cancer | Virology and Bioinformatics from Virology.ca | Scoop.it

In the past two decades, more than 20 viruses with selective tropism for tumor cells have been developed as oncolytic viruses (OVs) for treatments of a variety of malignancies. Of these viruses, eleven have been tested in human ovarian cancer models in preclinical studies. So far, nine phase I or II clinical trials have been conducted or initiated using four different types of OVs in patients with recurrent ovarian cancers.
