This project is to use genetic engineered cold-sore virus to treat prostate cancer. The virus is engineered to reduce its toxicity to normal tissues but can specifically attack and kill tumour cells. Meanwhile, the virus releases a group of anti-tumour immune stimulating factors to activate immune system to eliminate prostate tumour. This project will use a unique prostate tumour mouse model to test the virus.
