Abstract / Synopsis

Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is an enveloped single stranded RNA virus that causes deadly infection to over 250 species of birds, comprising domestic and wild-type, thus resulting in substantial economic loss to poultry industry across the globe. NDV possesses several distinctive properties that make it an outstanding anti-cancer agent. In humans it is reported to have oncolytic and immune-stimulatory effects, precisely replicates in tumour cells while sparing normal cells and causes oncolysis. Although NDV has been extensively studied by researchers there is still need for a vigorous research on its potential use as a new treatment modality to cancer patients through a known process termed viroimmunotherapy. This paper deals with an overview of the research which has been carried out worldwide in the use of immune-stimulatory properties of NDV as an anti-cancer agent.
