AACR Annual Meeting 2019 Presentations

Oncorus had four abstracts accepted for presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019, which took place from March 29 through April 3, 2019 in Atlanta, GA.

Oral Presentation - ONCR-177 Preclinical Data

Preclinical data supporting the clinical advancement of our lead clinical candidate, ONCR-177, were featured in an oral presentation the meeting. The data demonstrated that intra-tumoral administration of ONCR-177 resulted in high partial and complete response rates on both injected and non-injected tumors in preclinical models of several tumor types, including immune-inert, or cold, tumors. Responses were durable, resulting in an extension of survival and the establishment of protective immunity against tumor re-challenge. View press release.

Poster Presentations

Our three poster presentations at the meeting highlighted proprietary innovations in potency and safety we have engineered into both our oncolytic herpes simplex virus platform as well as our novel synthetic oncolytic virus platform that enable best-in-class potential for our portfolio programs and the opportunity to pursue multiple tumor indications.  View and download posters below.
