How oncolytic viruses have been modified so that they cannot replicate in normal cells, but are still able to divide in a wide variety of human cancer cells. History of oncolytic viruses. Arming oncolytic viruses. Using viruses like Seprehvir (HSV-1716), adapted to carry an additional payload: extra genes which teach infected cancer cells to take up a compound containing radioactive iodine from the blood, delivering a micro-dose of radiation inside individual cancer calls. Or adding a gene which teaches cancer cells how to split a harmless pro-drug into two, inside the cell, releasing a very effective chemotherapy (alkylating agent). Targetting oncolytic viruses -- by adapting the feet of a virus to that they latch onto receptors on the surface of specific human cancer cells such as prostate (prostate antigens / PSA). Oncolytic virotherapy: Results of early Phase III Rheolysin clinical trials -- combined oncolytic virus and cancer chemotherapy.

Oncolytic virus Seprehvir has passed an FDA safety review with approval for systemic administration of oncolytic viruses to children with advanced cancer. How genes work in viruses, and how genetic engineering allows us to cut and paste genes from one species into another. Dr Video made by Patrick Dixon author of The Genetic Revolution, Chairman of Global Change Ltd, an advisor to many large pharma companies and Chairman of Virttu Biologics Ltd which owns the oncolytic virus Seprehvir (HSV-1716) and many other variants. Seprehvir has been shown to be highly effective against a wide range of cancers in pre-clinical studies. Seprehvir has been used in clinical trials with strong evidence of impact and almost negligible side effects - trials in glioblastoma (brain cancer), squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck and melanoma. Seprehvir is now being used in clinical trials for mesothelioma (lung cancer caused by asbestos), with others planned for hepatocellular carcinoma (live cancer) and ovarian cancer. OncoVEX GM-CSF developed by BioVex in phase III for advanced melanoma, could become first approved oncolytic virus in the western world. OncoVEX GM-CSF is also in a phase 3 trial for head and neck cancer. Reolysin (owned by Oncolytics Biotech) is in phase 3 clinical trials for head and neck cancer with early results in colorectal cancer. JX-594 is owned by Jennerex and in clinical trials for hepatocellular carcinoma. JX-594 is a thymidine kinase-deleted Vaccinia virus plus GM-CSF. NTX-010 is in clinical trials for small cell lung cancer and neuroblastoma. CGTG-102 (Ad5/3-D24-GMCSF) is owned by Oncos Therapeutics. GL-ONC1 is owned by Genelux in Phase I clinicla trials. Cavatak is being developed to treat malignant melanoma. Oncorine was approved a few years ago in China for treatment of head and neck cancer - built from H101 virus.
