Dr Andtbacka meets with ecancertv at WCCS 2016 to discuss the use of oncolytic virotherapy (OV) in the treatment of melanoma.

He discusses the OPTiM trials of T-VEC, a genetically modified herpes virus, including identifying which patients have the most durable response, and looks forward to potential combinations for T-VEC and other OVs.
