The grant focuses on the area of stomach (gastric) cancer (GC), a disease that disproportionately affects US military service members, veterans, and their beneficiaries who have increased exposure to hazardous environmental risk factors, such as H. pylori, Epstein-Barr viral infections, radiation, and tobacco smoking.

Peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) is a fatal evolution of GC for which there is no effective treatment.

Across military families and the general population, over 60% of all patients with GC will develop peritoneal disease as the most common manifestation of recurrence or metastatic presentation.

The progression of primary GC to PC is facilitated by the unique peritoneal tumour microenvironment, where metastatic peritoneal seeding requires evasion of anti-tumour immunity and maintenance of a highly immunosuppressive microenvironment.

The researchers rationalize that a combined approach using Imugenes proposed license for novel oncolytic virus CF33 armed to express an anti-PD-L1 antibody as immune moRead More – Source
