PHOENIX, October 5, 2020 – OncoMyx Therapeutics, a privately-held oncolytic immunotherapy company, announced that members of its senior management team will provide a company update today at 2:30 pm ET and host investor meetings at the Chardan Virtual 4th Annual Genetic Medicines Conference. The conference is taking place virtually October 5th and 6th.
“We are leveraging the unique advantages of myxoma virus to target mechanisms that are common to a number of cancers,” said Steve Potts, Ph.D., MBA, founder and chief executive officer of OncoMyx. “With this pan-tumor approach, we are advancing a best-in-class pipeline of systemically-administered myxoma virotherapies in combination with checkpoint inhibitors and other immuno-oncology approaches that could boost the number of patients who could benefit from immunotherapies.”
OncoMyx was founded on breakthrough research demonstrating the myxoma virus is highly immuno-interactive and can selectively infect and kill a broad range of cancer cell types. As a virus that is nonpathogenic to humans, myxoma does not have to overcome pre-existing immunity. With a large genome, myxoma is ideal for multi-arming, creating a precision medicine approach with a unique oncolytic virus that can activate the cancer immunity cycle and expand the therapeutic effectiveness of immunotherapies.
