According to the topic editors, E. Antonio Chiocca, MD, PhD, FAANS; Frederick F. Lang, MD, FAANS; and James M. Markert, MD, FAANS:

“The mode of action of this therapy depends on expression of genes (be it from gene therapy or viral genes from an oncolytic virus) in the GBM microenvironment to cause cytotoxic and immunogenic cell death, leading to an adaptive immune response against tumor. The reports in this issue encompass a snapshot of the field: approaches such as oncolytic herpes simplex virus 1–mediated delivery, oncolytic adenovirus, oncolytic Newcastle disease virus, and oncolytic vesicular stomatitis virus. The strategies discussed in these papers represent a few of the many approaches for GBM that are being tested, some in clinical trials. Novel delivery methods (such as intra-arterial delivery) are also discussed. To provide the reader with an appreciation of the plethora of approaches currently under investigation, several review articles on the topic are also included.”
