DNA pharmaceuticals; formulation and delivery in gene therapy, DNA vaccination and immunotherapy.

Ed. by Martin Schleef.



253 pages




This collection of 13 papers extends previous work on plasmid vectors for therapy and vaccination to describe administration, quality control and regulatory aspects of treatment. After an introductory article on DNA vaccines contributors offer such topics as the regulatory aspects of DNA as a pharmaceutical, plasmid manufacturing and storage, localized nucleic acid delivery, needle-less injection of naked DNA for nonviral in vivo gene transfer, inhalation, hydrodymanic gene delivery, applications to skin diseases, electrotransfection, electrogenetransfer, and a clinical study of cancer inhibition in mice.
