Abstract Growth factors have the potential to enhance native repair responses in ligamentous lesions. However, methods for applying these cytokines to sites of injury for extended periods are lacking. We suggest that local transfer of genes which encode the relevant healing factors merits investigation as a potential solution to this problem. In the present study, the retroviral vectors MFG lacZ and BAG lacZ neor and adenovirus LacZ were evaluated for their ability to deliver genes to cells of… CONTINUE READING
