This happens to be a neat trick. It allows a harmless bacteria to become a cancer killer upon reaching the cell. This is a very effective approach. Boosting the immune system can then put further pressure on the cancer cells hopefully without selecting for more perfect cancer cells.
This approach can be applied to a range of harmless biolgical agents as well to provide a large arsenal.
This allows cycling through agents to reduce the cancer for a long time.
