Pelareorep is a non-pathogenic, proprietary isolate of the unmodified reovirus. A first-in-class intravenously delivered immuno-oncolytic virus (IOV) for the treatment of solid tumors and hematological malignancies. It induces selective tumor lysis and promotes an inflamed tumor phenotype through innate and adaptive immune responses to treat a variety of cancers. Actively turning 'COLD' tumors 'HOT'.
We have received a clearance from the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) of China for initiating the open-label, randomized, multicenter, global phase III clinical trial for pelareorep (AN1004) in combination with paclitaxel in patients with advanced/ static breast cancer in China.
