Viruses may boost immunotherapy in brain and breast cancer

Infecting tumours with viruses may boost the success of immunotherapy for brain and breast cancers, according to two new studies. Immunotherapy treatments can trigger impressive responses in patients with a handful of advanced cancers. But success has been limited in both brain and breast cancers. The new studies, both published in Science Translational Medicine, suggest that cancer-targeting viruses could prime these tumours for subsequent immune attack.
