GMO characterization

GMO is a:
DNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
ICOVIR-5 is an oncolytic adenovirus which in this study will infect mesenchymal cells
(CELYVIR) for their later ninfusión to patients with solid refractory or relapsed solid
tumours. This is why the name of the study is CELYVIR (mesenchymal cells infected with
adenovirus ICOVIR). ICOVIR-5 (HAd5-DM-E2F-K-Δ24-RGD) is an oncolytic adenovirus
derived from HAd5. It has been designed for systemic treatment of disseminated tumors. ICOVIR-5
genome contains several modifications that confer selective replication in tumoral cells with
deregulated retinoblastoma/E2F pathway. ICOVIR-5 includes the following modifications:
1. Endogenous E1A promoter substitution by E2F-1 promoter, to control viral E1A protein
expression.
2. DM-1 genomic insulator insertion preceding E2F-1 promoter.
3. Kozak sequence insertion at E1A start codon (K)
4. 8-amino acid deletion at the pRb-binding domain in E1A protein (Δ24 deletion)
5. RGD-tripeptide insertion in the viral fiber protein.
