PVSRIPO Bioactivity Triple Negative Breast Cancer - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to learn how the study drug called PVSRIPO works and to see how it affects breast cancer tumors.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Triple Negative Breast Cancer

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Adult women who:
- Have stage II-IV triple negative breast cancer who are planning to have surgery
- Have had their last dose of chemotherapy at least 3 weeks before the vaccine
