CF33 is a chimeric vaccinia poxvirus
from the lab of Professor Yuman Fong, chair of Surgery at city of Hope, and a noted expert in the oncolytic virus field.
OncoMyx's proprietary OV platform is a unique and potentially best-in-class therapeutic approach that is backed by over 30 peer-reviewed publications by ASU Professor McFadden and his collaborators evaluating a poxvirus
, MYXV, as an oncolytic agent in a range of tumor models.
Reynolds is the deputy chief of the Poxvirus
and Rabies Branch in the Division of High-Consequence Pathogens and Pathology, National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
We present herein the history, clinical findings, and macroscopic and histologic lesions caused by a clade C poxvirus
in an exotic psittacine breeding colony in southern Brazil.
Once the researchers glued the full genome together and introduced it into cells infected by another type of poxvirus
, the cells began to produce infectious particles.
On January 24, with no further identifying information obtained and the couple still not located, the CDC Poxvirus
and Rabies Branch and the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine contacted the national focal point in Switzerland identified through the IHR network maintained by WHO to inform the Swiss government of the incident.
The research showed that the synthetic horsepox virus could provide vaccine protection in a mouse model of poxvirus
identification from clinical specimens by PCR, cell culture, immunofluorescence and agar gel immunoprecipitation assay.
Since then a variety of attenuated poxvirus
strains has been explored as vaccine vectors, e.g.
Molluscum is a benign viral skin infection caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus, which is a member of the poxvirus
Group member Rachel Locke said the arrival of grey squirrels would see the spread of the deadly poxvirus
and greys outcompeting reds for food.
