Gene therapy is a research area where nucleic acids are transferred into cells to treat neoplastic, metabolic and hereditary diseases. Delivery of genetic material into living organisms can be achieved with viral or non-viral vectors. Viral gene carriers are very efficient but present some major disadvantages due to their pathogenicity and immunogenicity. Nonviral carriers are based on synthetic molecules binding and condensing nucleic acids into small, virus-like particles. The aim of this… Expand
