OncoMyx Therapeutics is developing oncolytic immunotherapies based on the myxoma virus (MYXV) platform to orchestrate an immune response and treat cancer. Successful immuno-oncology (IO) cancer treatment generally requires combination therapy, and oncolytic viruses (OVs) have emerged as a safe and effective IO complement.
Our MYXV platform, spun-out from Arizona State University (ASU), is poised to be a best-in-class OV approach. We have assembled the top OV team around MYXV to advance a pipeline of oncology therapeutics for the benefit of cancer patients.
OVs are emerging as a new pillar of cancer care to complement the effectiveness of immunotherapies such as immune checkpoint blockade. The best-in-class MYXV platform is the only OV in development that is collectively a non-human pathogen, inherently immuno-stimulatory, easily multi-armed, and systemically delivered.
To develop oncolytic immunotherapies with an unambiguous, promotable advantage that eradicate hard-to-cure cancers.
