The delineation of the genetic etiology of cancer makes gene therapy a rational approach for the molecular treatment of cancer. Many gene delivery systems have been developed, with viral vectors being the most effective. Underlying cancer gene therapy protocols is the recognition that...
Current methods of gene transfer have a rather low efficiency, especially in vivo. Therefore, one tries to achieve the highest possible levels of expression in the few cells that do take up foreign DNA. One approach is to use self-amplifying expression vectors. These vectors are based on the...
Current protocols for the treatment of intracerebral glioma are inadequate, with limited reduction in morbidity or mortality. As such, gene therapy paradigms have been developed. Initial progress in rodent models using in situ introduction of retroviral vector producer cells to transfer a...
Arthritis is presently incurable and poorly treatable, but there are good grounds for expecting gene therapy to improve matters considerably. Although local ex vivo delivery of anti-arthritic genes to the synovial lining of joints has shown considerable promise, intraarticular gene delivery may...
The study of herpes virus biology has produced two vector delivery strategies which exploit the highly evolved neuronal tropism and life cycle regulation exhibited by this class of viruses. Amplicon and recombinant herpes simplex virus systems show promise for use in gene transfer to the nervous...
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) has several characteristics which make it extremely attractive as a gene transfer vector: (1) no known pathogenicity; (2) high efficiency and the ability to remain latent; (3) a minimal number of antigens ensuring minimal immunogenicity; (4) the ability to transduce...
Gene transfer could represent an important advance in the treatment of both genetic and acquired diseases. Cationic lipid-mediated gene transfer have advantages over viral gene transfer because they are non-immunogenic, they are easy to produce and they are not oncogenic. The major limitation of...
