Long description:

CG Oncology is developing oncolytic immunotherapies to treat patients with advanced bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is the 4th most common form of cancer in men in the US. To address this CG is genetically engineering oncolytic immunotherapies. The therapy has a dual mechanism of action: first, the therapy infects and replicates inside tumor cells causing cell lysis. Secondly, the rupturing of cancer cells releases tumor-derived antigens that stimulates a systemic anti-tumor immune response. CG has 3 active clinical programs with their lead candidate, CG0070, showing remarkable efficacy in bladder cancer patients in their clinical trials.
