CALGARY, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Oncolytics Biotech Inc. ("Oncolytics") (TSX:ONC, NASDAQ: ONCY) and the Cancer Therapy & Research Center at The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, (CTRC at UTHSCSA) announced a broad preclinical and clinical collaboration involving up to five, open-label, Phase 2 studies exploring the use of REOLYSIN(R) in combination with chemotherapy for various cancer indications. These indications are expected to include melanoma, pancreatic cancer, squamous cell lung, liver and K-RAS mutated colorectal cancers in combination with standard chemotherapeutics. This research program is in addition to Phase 2 trials in sarcoma and refractory head & neck cancers, sponsored by Oncolytics that are currently underway at this site.

"As Director of our Institute for Drug Development (IDD), I am pleased to specifically dedicate IDD resources toward the further rapid investigation of REOLYSIN(R), an agent which is proving itself in the clinic."

"We're excited that an institution of this caliber is investing in additional research opportunities for REOLYSIN(R)," said Dr. Karl Mettinger, Chief Medical Officer of Oncolytics. "This comprehensive research program will explore additional opportunities for REOLYSIN(R) in cancer treatment, while allowing the Company to focus its resources on developing its pivotal program."
