The success of gene therapy requires the development of the gene delivery vector. Owing to its ability to mediate stable transgene efficiency, large cloning capacity, devoid of eliciting a major humoral immune response, and lower cost, multicistronic vector has entered the realm of the current therapeutic gene transfer arena, recently [27].
Update on chitosan; a non-viral gene delivery vector.
"We have worked every day for 10 years to design a construct to the gene delivery vector that enhances the safety profile of gene transfer for Parkinson's disease," said Ronald Mandel, a professor of neuroscience at UF.
The eight selections that make up the main body of the text are devoted to adenovirus biology and development as a gene delivery vector, innate and adaptive immune responses to adenovirus, helper-dependent adenoviral vectors for cell and gene therapy, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
"Since retroviruses other than lentiviruses do not express Vpr and Vpx, the ability to utilize Gag to deliver RT and IN during the packaging of the gene transfer vector allows us to extend the unique safety feature to all retroviruses, rendering them as safer gene delivery vector systems."
