Oncolytic viruses in combination with neoantigens are potent stimulators of an immune response and therefore make excellent adjuvants.'
This research led to the development of the AD-MSC based platform technology which incorporates three important elements: (i) The ability to protect oncolytic viruses from complement inactivation and innate immune cell inactivation; (ii) The ability to support oncolytic viral amplification in the AD-MSC, and (iii) The ability to modify tumor microenvironment by inducing transient immune suppression to allow effective tumor cell targeting and viral amplification at the tumor site for an extended period of time.
Oncolytic viruses that can selectively replicate in and lyse cancer cells without harming normal cells are qualified enough to become a powerful platform for immunotherapy involving both direct tumor cell lysis and the induction of immunogenic cell death (ICD).
