General description

This reference covers all aspects of gene therapy, including viral and nonviral delivery systems, targeted diseases, regulatory issues, and FDA requirements. It investigates genetic bullets to block HIV-1 replication and genetic guns to deliver antiviral agents. It examines donor cells, vector systems, and functional genes; defines extra- and intracellular pathways and barriers for gene delivery; addresses the interaction of micelles and liposomes with nucleic acids; describes the formulations, pharmacology, and toxicology of oligonucleotides; considers RNA catalysis and decoy RNAs; and outlines hematopoietic stem cell procurement.
