My assumption is you need to balance stimulating the immune system and causing a severe infection. I need to read the paper to see if it was full bacterial lysate or if you could take some PAMPs to stimulate an immune response

The do this currently with gold nanoparticles and directed light. Unfortunately, the light can only penetrate a few millimeters into the tissue so it’s not effective for most cancers. It’s called photothermal therapy.

New chemistries for PTT have been developed that can penetrate further into the tissue but still wouldn’t work for most cancers

This is the case but it’s also expensive to develop the cells used for AAV based drugs because the cells are killedwhen the virus is made. This, you can’t reuse the same set of cells throughout the process.
