Fragile histidine triad expression delays tumor development and induces apoptosis in human pancreatic cancer.


The fragile histidine triad (FHIT) gene is a tumor suppressor gene that is altered by deletion in a large fraction of human tumors, including pancreatic cancer. To evaluate the potential of FHIT gene therapy, we developed recombinant adenoviral and adenoassociated viral (AAV) FHIT vectors and tested these vectors in vitro and in vivo for activity against… (More)
