The use of adeno-associated virus (AAV) as a gene transfer vector has been steadily increasing over the past several years. AAV vectors have been particularly useful for applications where sustained gene expression is required. Prolonged in vivo expression following AAV treatment has been seen in the liver (1,2), brain (3,4), skeletal muscle (5,6), lung (7,8), and hematopoietic stem cells (9,10) of animal models. Therapeutic benefit from AAV treatment has been shown in a number of preclinical… CONTINUE READING
