DNAtrix Enters into an Exclusive License Agreement with the University of Florida to Develop Novel Oncolytic Virus Platform

DNAtrix has entered into an exclusive license agreement with the University of Florida, Gainesville to develop a novel oncolytic virus platform. The platform is based on myxoma virus, a poxvirus that has been shown to have beneficial features for treating cancers. A major advantage of the myxoma virus is its ability to attach to T lymphocytes and other white blood cells, which are then delivered to the patient to trigger tumor cell killing and antitumor immunity. Myxoma virus can be armed with multiple immune stimulatory genes, a feature shared by other large DNA viruses such as herpes simplex and adenovirus.
