Gene therapy of arthritis

Gene therapy of arthritis Gene therapy can offer a new approach to arthritis treatment which acts at an inflammation site. Numerous studies show high efficacy of gene therapy in different models of arthritis in humans. Even a single injection of a recombinant vector results in a stable prolonged expression of a therapeutic gene and a longterm therapeutic effect. In contrast to biologic therapy involving numerous systemic injections of recombinant anti-inflammatory proteins, gene therapy does not produce systemic side effects. Vectors based on retroviruses, adenoviruses, adeno-associated viruses, and recombinant plasmids could provide delivery of target genes. Of significant importance is the development of noninvasive methods of gene therapy: intranasal and peroral. The current state of research in arthritis gene therapy is discussed in this review. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Gene therapy can offer a new approach to arthritis treatment which acts at an inflammation site. Numerous studies show high efficacy of gene therapy in different models of arthritis in humans. Even a single injection of a recombinant vector results in a stable prolonged expression of a therapeutic gene and a longterm therapeutic effect. In contrast to biologic therapy involving numerous systemic injections of recombinant anti-inflammatory proteins, gene therapy does not produce systemic side effects. Vectors based on retroviruses, adenoviruses, adeno-associated viruses, and recombinant plasmids could provide delivery of target genes. Of significant importance is the development of noninvasive methods of gene therapy: intranasal and peroral. The current state of research in arthritis gene therapy is discussed in this review.
