The oncolytic virus (OV) is a group of tumor-killing virus with replication ability, reproducing effectively in cancer cells without damaging healthy cells. Oncolytic viruses can be separated into two main groups according to the development, namely natural viruses and genetically modified viruses. Among them, natural viruses include wide type and naturally variant strains of weak virus. The ability to produce virions quickly and genetically engineer additional genes that promote antitumor immunity, increase tumor cell susceptibility, and improve patient safety, are main advantages of oncolytic viruses.
The mechanism of oncolytic virus action is to selectively replicate in and destroy tumor cells. At the same time, it can stimulate the immune response to attract more immune cells to destroy residual cancer cells continuously. The following is a summary of the immune response caused by oncolytic virus-infected organisms. The virus has a strong stimulating result on the immune cells infiltrating the tumor, significantly changing the microenvironment of the tumor. Tumor cells that infected by viruses express “danger signals” (such as cytokines), inducing outside immune cells to infiltrate the tumor and activate nonspecific immune cells. Non-specific immune cells phagocytize tumor proteins that released by OV-lysed tumor cells, and some tumor-specific antigens could be expressed by antigen presenting cells, inducing T cells to attack uninfected tumor cells.

Nowadays, oncolytic viruses have been used in clinical trials for treatment and there is an oncolytic virus product T-VEC that has been approved by FDA. Oncolytic virotherapy has been regarded as a promising and effective approach for cancer therapeutics that is easier to destroy tumor cells compared with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
The following is the features of oncolytic virotherapy:
At present, adenoviruses, vaccinia viruses, herpes viruses, reoviruses and coxsackieviruses are the widely studied oncolytic viruses. The table below lists some commonly oncolytic viruses and related indications.
