The use of replication-deficient adenoviral vectors in gene therapy may become a powerful method to achieve efficient but safe transfer of anti-tumor agents. Introduction of the wild-type p53 gene into tumor cells has, in general, been associated with growth suppression. In this study, infection of androgen-independent human prostate Tsu-pr1 cells lacking(More)
Adenoviral-mediated gene transfer for the treatment of experimental intrinsic malignant brain neoplasms holds promise. The role, however, of intracellular, adenoviral-mediated p53 expression to inhibit growth of experimental human intracranial malignant gliomas remains largely unexplored. Using the AdCMV.p53 vector we measured the in vitro expression of p53(More)
Gene therapy as an anti-tumor strategy is becoming a powerful tool for cytokine delivery to inhibit the growth of many tumors. Several delivery systems are being utilized and designed for the expression of specific genes to achieve a therapeutic result. Liposomes, retroviral vectors, and adenoviral vectors have all been used and eventual clinical(More)
