Attacking Cancer Cells With Viruses

The AdARET killed cancer cells (A549, H1299, and C33A) in a dose-dependent manner while normal cells (BJ and WI38) were largely unaffected particularly with small doses of AdARET. Living cells were stained blue. MOI indicates the number of virus particles per cell. (Yohei Mikawa et al., Cancers, May 11, 2020). Credit: Yohei Mikawa et al., Cancers, May 11, 2020
