Oncolytics Company Profile

13:48 EST 24th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

The Company's technologies are based on discoveries arising from research conducted at the University of Calgary. Dr. Coffey, VP Product Development for the Company was instrumental in these discoveries, and continues to be instrumental in the product development process.

The Company was formed in 1998, to explore the natural oncolytic capability of the reovirus, a virus that preferentially replicates in cells with an activated Ras pathway.

The product being developed by the Company may represent a novel treatment for certain tumor types and some cellular proliferative disorders. The Company’s product is a virus that is able to replicate specifically in, and hence kill, certain tumor cells both in tissue culture as well as in a number of animal models.

The Company’s product for human use, REOLYSIN®, is the reovirus. This virus has been demonstrated to replicate specifically in tumor cells bearing an activated Ras pathway. Activating mutations of Ras and upstream elements of Ras may play a role in greater than two thirds of all potential tumors.
