Summary

A broad review of the field to date for students and teachers, and for scientists in other disciplines. The contributors discuss the work generally in their specialty rather than just their own research. They begin with viral delivery, discussing such topics as retroviral and adenovirus vectors and designing and using herpes simplex viral vectors. Then they turn to such nonviral delivery systems as receptor- mediated gene transfer and polymer-encapsulated cells. Other therapeutic strategies and regulatory aspects are considered from perspectives including applications of ribozymes, selectable markers, and suicide gene therapy. Finally, a section explores disease targets and therapeutic strategies, among them hematopoietic disorders, inborn errors of metabolism, and cancer. Annotation c.
