Berlex Biosciences, Richmond, CA. Presents papers from the workshop, Human Gene Therapy: Current Opportunities and Future Trends, held in Berkeley, California, on October 2-4, 2002. Provides an overview of the present status and future directions of gene delivery systems and therapeutic strategies for gene therapy.
About this book
Advances in genetics, molecular biology and gene delivery technologies in recent years have led to new gene therapy strategies for treatment of a variety of diseases. This book gives a comprehensive overview of the present status and future directions of gene delivery systems and therapeutic strategies for the clinical application of gene therapy in cancer, cardiovascular and central nervous system diseases. Stem cell-based therapies and gene expression regulatory systems as novel platform technologies for various gene therapy applications are also discussed. Leading experts give excellent overviews of basic molecular aspects and clinical applications in this new emerging biomedical field.
