Peripheral nerve injury in humans often leads to incomplete functional recovery. In this review we discuss the potential for gene therapy to be used as a strategy alongside surgical repair techniques for the study of peripheral nerve regeneration in rodent models and with a view to its eventual use for the promotion of successful regeneration in the clinic. Gene therapy vectors based on herpes simplex virus, adenovirus, lentivirus and adeno-associated virus have been developed to deliver genes… CONTINUE READING
