The importance of gene therapy strategies for the treatment of malignancies is highlighted by the fact that there are (at the time of writing) 823 cancer gene therapy clinical trials world‐ wide that are actively, or have yet to begin recruiting patients (www.clinicaltrials.gov ac‐ cessed November 2012). The potential of the delivery of genetic material for therapeutic purposes has long been recognised, but to this point, has yet to be successfully translated. Strategies that have proved… CONTINUE READING
