Gene transfer of cytidine deaminase protects myelopoiesis from cytidine analogs in an in vivo murine transplant model.


Hematopoietic stem cell gene transfer of the drug-resistance gene cytidine deaminase (CDD) protecting cells from the cytotoxic cytidine analogs cytarabine and gemcitabine was investigated in a murine transplant model. Following transplantation of CDD-transduced cells and cytarabine application (500 mg/kg; days 1-4; intraperitoneally) significant… (More)
