Already impressive, it appears that the prevention and treatment of disease through genes delivered by electric fields has significant potential. These 40 papers and hands-on protocols describing processes of non-viral delivery of genetic materials such as DNA, oligo-DNA and RNA are likely to pick up the pace of this already dynamic field, with such topics as basic concepts of DNA transfer via electroporation (including mechanisms, electrode design and formulations), in vitro targeted gene delivery (including delivery of DNA into natural killer cells for immunotherapy, delivery of DNA into skin, lungs, retinas and other structures), and treatment of cancer through electroporation gene therapy (including delivery of DNA into tumors, in the treatment of head and neck tumors in dogs and in clinical trials), in treatment of other conditions including hemophilia, wounds, hypertension, dystrophic muscles, and fat masses) and applications in vaccination for such conditions as prostate cancer and breast tumors.
