‚Unlocking‘ the potential of viruses to fight cancer

Researchers have elucidated the mechanism through which the H-1PV cancer-destroying virus can cause cell lysis and death. At the heart of this process lie laminins, and specifically laminin gamma 1, a family of proteins on the surface of a cancer cell to which this virus binds. The findings carry significant implications for the advancement of virus-based anticancer strategies and for the prediction of a patient’s response to this innovative therapeutic approach.
