Evaluation of biodistribution of a fiber-chimeric, conditionally replication-competent (oncolytic) adenovirus in CD46 receptor transgenic mice.


The limited efficacy of adenovirus type 5 (Ad5)-based oncolytic viruses seen in the clinic thus far may be attributable in part to variable expression of its receptor on tumor cells. Replacement of the Ad5 fiber knob with the Ad35 fiber knob generated the Ad5/35 chimeric virus, which has previously been demonstrated to have significant antitumor activity in… (More)
