【Customer Dynamics】Congratulation | The product MVR-C5252 from ImmVira, a new oncolytic virus product targeting glioma, has been granted "orphan drug" designation by the US FDA.
Malignant glioma has a poor prognosis with a high recurrence rate of nearly 100% and a median survival time of only 1.5 years, creating urgent needs for a more effective treatment option. Developed on ImmVira's OVPENS (Open Vector + Potent, Enabling, Novel & Safe) platform, MVR-C5252 is designed specifically for the treatment of central nervous system tumors. This product has been further precisely attenuated to achieve on-target malignant gliocyte killing while maintaining safety profile; and the product also carries specific therapeutic exogenous genes to promote the immune response of tumor microenvironment for further anti-tumor activity. On June 11, 2021, Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited's oncolytic therapy Delytact received conditional and time-limited approval from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan (MHLW), for the treatment of malignant glioma, becoming the world's first OV therapy approved for brain tumors and another strong validation of HSV-1 modality.
