Neuroprotection in the rat Parkinson model by intrastriatal GDNF gene transfer using a lentiviral vector.

Abstract

We used a recombinant lentiviral vector (rLV) for gene delivery of GDNF to the striatum, and assessed its neuroprotective effects in the intrastriatal 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesion model. The level of GDNF expression obtained with the rLV-GDNF vector was dose-related and ranged between 0.9-9.3 ng/mg tissue in the transduced striatum, as determined by… (More)
