The development of novel therapeutic strategies is imperative for the treatment of advanced cancers like ovarian cancer and glioma, which are resistant to most traditional treatment modalities. In this regard, adenoviral (Ad) cancer gene therapy is a promising approach. However, the gene delivery efficiency of human serotype 5 recombinant adenoviruses (Ad5)(More)
INTRODUCTION In view of the limited success of available treatment modalities for metastatic breast cancer, alternative and complementary strategies need to be developed. Adenoviral vector mediated strategies for breast cancer gene therapy and virotherapy are a promising novel therapeutic platform for the treatment of breast cancer. However, the promiscuous(More)
Despite the many potential advantages of Ad vectors for vaccine application, the full utility of current Ad vaccines may be limited by the host anti-vector immune response. Direct incorporation of antigens into the adenovirus capsid offers a new and exciting approach for vaccination strategies; this strategy exploits the inherent antigenicity of the Ad(More)
Endothelial cells have been noted to have relatively low expression of the native receptor for adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5), coxsackie and adenovirus receptor (CAR), and are thus refractory to Ad5 infection. In this study, we hypothesize that increases in the infectivity of Ad5 in primary human pulmonary artery (HPAEC), coronary artery (HCAEC) and umbilical(More)
