About Us

We're a company founded to improve outcomes for patients with cancer.

ImmVirX seeks to advance a new generation of cancer treatments by developing a novel oncolytic immunotherapy that targets cancer indications with high unmet need.

Company Overview

ImmVirX was founded in July 2019 by the team from Viralytics, a clinical-stage ASX-listed oncolytic virus company acquired in June 2018 by Merck and Co. Inc. for A$502 million. We are developing proprietary bio-selected RNA viruses with the capacity to selectively infect and kill cancer cells while also inducing tumour inflammation and achieving immune cell infiltration – potentially leading to the generation of specific innate and adaptive immune responses against cancer cells.
Our viral candidates are intended to increase the anti-tumour activity of current cancer immunotherapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors, CAR-Ts and other cell therapies, and are targeted against a range of difficult-to-treat cancers, including colorectal, gastric, pancreatic and ovarian cancer.
