Oncorus Announces Four Presentations at AACR Annual Meeting 2019

-- Oral presentation to highlight preclinical data supporting company’s

lead oncolytic virus therapy clinical candidate, ONCR-177 --

-- Three poster presentations to showcase multiple, proprietary innovations

underlying company’s local and systemic oncolytic virus platforms --

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 20, 2019 – Oncorus, Inc., an oncolytic virus therapeutics company focused on driving innovation to transform outcomes for cancer patients, announced today that four abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the upcoming American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019, which will be held from March 29 through April 3, 2019 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

Oncorus will give an oral presentation highlighting preclinical data supporting the advancement of its lead pipeline candidate, ONCR-177, a locally administered oncolytic virus therapy armed with five immunomodulatory payloads for the treatment of multiple solid tumor indications. ONCR-177 is built on Oncorus’ proprietary, next-generation oncolytic herpes simplex virus (oHSV) platform. The company’s three poster presentations will detail proprietary innovations in potency and safety engineered by Oncorus into both its oHSV platform as well as its novel synthetic oncolytic virus platform that enable best-in-class potential for the company’s portfolio programs and the opportunity to pursue multiple tumor indications

“Our research team under the leadership of our CSO, Dr. Christophe Quéva, continues to make rapid progress advancing both our oncolytic herpes simplex virus and synthetic oncolytic virus platforms to enable intratumoral and intravenous administration of oncolytic virus therapies, respectively, that have the potential to address a spectrum of critical, unmet cancer treatment needs,” said Ted Ashburn, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Oncorus. “We look forward to sharing our proprietary innovations on both platforms at this year’s AACR Annual Meeting, in particular preclinical data supporting the clinical advancement of our lead candidate ONCR-177.”

The schedule and details for Oncorus’ oral and poster presentations are as follows:
