Raúl Méndez: "The oncoselectivity in the animal models we have used is complete"


La Sexta newscast team has covered the research performed by IDIBAPS Biomedical Research Institute and IRB Barcelona scientists on a new strategy to achieve genetically modified viruses that selectively attack tumor cells without affecting healthy tissues.

"As it is based on mechanisms that do not exist at all in healthy tissue, the oncoselectivity in the animal models we have used is complete", explains ICREA researcher Raúl Méndez, head of the Translational Control of Cell Cycle and Differentiation Lab at IRB Barcelona, talking about his study in collaboration with Cristina Fillat from IDIBAPS.
