This is the first book of its kind to summarize and review the increasingly important field of genetic therapy with respect to the latest immunological advances in the lab and clinic. The topic is approached from a vector and target organ point of view, rather than from the perspective of specific diseases. This provides scientists, physicians, and students with a powerful tool for comparing vectors and target organs side-by-side, making choices, anticipating potential problems, modifying protocols, and obtaining a broader view of the issues involved in developing gene therapies.
