Project TheraVision – Innovative therapy against cancer
In the "TheraVision" project, five Fraunhofer Institutes have set themselves the goal of establishing a widely applicable platform technology for an innovative, sustainable cancer therapy that combines cancer-killing viruses and immunotherapy. The activation of the immune system against the degenerated tumor cells is a novel promising therapeutic approach.
