Beyond smallpox, future goals for SIGA Technologies may include the use of TPOXX in cancer trials. Currently, researchers use the vaccinia virus, part of the poxvirus family, to attack tumor cells. The body then recognizes the virus and attacks it, a process that kills both the tumor and the virus. In extreme cases, the vaccinia virus may replicate a little too quickly, bypassing the immune system. TPOXX could curtail the spread of that virus, a side effect of the cancer treatment.

“It’s a great example of an unexpected opportunity,” Gomez said. “Sometimes those things pop up during drug development, so we’re excited about that.”
