We answered this question on the show...

David K. -   Eventually, yes.  Brain tumours can either be metastatic, spread from another spot from the body, or they can start in the brain.  The ones that start in the brain that are the most difficult to treat are called glioblastoma multiforme.
A number of oncolytic viruses similar to the ones we’re using are being tested in glioblastoma and eventually, we will test ours against glioblastoma as well, although we’ve not started these clinical trials yet.
