Adenovirus-mediated gene therapy in a mouse model of hereditary tyrosinemia type I.

Abstract

Mice lacking the enzyme fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase (FAH) have symptoms similar to humans with the disease hereditary tyrosinemia type I (HT1). FAH-deficient mice were injected with a first-generation adenoviral vector expressing the human FAH gene and followed for up to 9 months.
