Delta-Vir GmbH

A new paradigm
for the therapy of cancer patients

At Delta-Vir we believe that "Quality counts and life is for living!"

We believe that cancer therapeutics should not only significantly extend the life expectancy of cancer sufferers, but that the treatment should not have side effects which further decrease the patients’ general well-being and quality of life.  Our cancer vaccine is such that it can be used concomitantly with standard radio/chemotherapy treatments but also has the future potential to be used as a standalone therapy.

The company Delta-Vir GmbH was founded in 2011 with the  aim of expanding the access of a novel therapeutic cancer vaccine treatment which has been developed and used to treat patients at the IOZK (Immunologisches und Onkologisches Zentrum Köln) in Cologne, Germany.

Our cancer treatment is based on use of an anti-cancer vaccine which specifically stimulates the patient's own immune response to fight their tumour. This type of vaccine is unusual in that being a bespoke, patient-specific therapy it has been devised to provide a uniquely appropriate and specific response to the actual tumour tissue which affects the patient.

Dendritic Cell Vaccines

The award of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Medicine for the discovery of dendritic cells and the understanding of the activation and control of the immune system highlights the potential for future scientific breakthrough in this area. Our dendritic cell vaccine work over past decade has built on these discoveries and attempts to apply this knowledge to develop an effective immunological approach to cancer therapy.
