Date:9/4/2007

CALGARY, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Oncolytics Biotech Inc. (TSX: ONC, NASDAQ: ONCY) ("Oncolytics") today announced that it has been granted U.S. Patent 7,264,798 entitled "Sensitization of Chemotherapeutic Agent Resistant Neoplastic Cells with a Virus." The claims describe a method of using reovirus to prevent Ras-activated cancers from developing drug resistance to chemotherapeutic agents.

"This patent complements the combination REOLYSIN(R) and chemotherapy clinical program that we are pursuing in the U.K."
