MSS-CRC: New Oncolytic Virus + PD1 Inhibitor Trial

Postby DK37 » Wed Aug 03, 2016 7:05 am

As mentioned in previous posts - oncolytic virus therapy has shown potentially some but not clearly high efficacy against CRC in the past but many scientists believe/hope that this treatment modality may be "rescued" by co-dosing with a PD-1 inhibitor.

A new trial has opened up in Indiana to test this hypothesis - they are specifically interested in testing against CRC.

Interesting combination, DK. The virus might work to overcome checkpoint resistance. Plus, this particular virus (enadenotucirev) has been shown to directly stimulate immune cell activity and act synergistically with checkpoint inhibitors. Keeping fingers crossed for good results from this one!

Stage IV, liver/lung mets 8/4/2010
Xelox+Avastin 8/18/10 to 10/21/11
LAR, liver resec, HAI pump 11/11
Double lung surgery + ileo reversal 2/12
Adjuvant Xeloda 3-9/12
VATS rt. lung 12/21/12 - benign granuloma!
NED 3/17/12 to 7/13/2018, CEA<1
