Abstract

Adenoviral vectors are promising gene transfer vehicles for different gene therapy applications. High-capacity adenoviral (HC-Ad) vectors address some of the problems that have been observed with replication-defective, E1-deleted first-generation adenoviral vectors: toxicity and immunogenicity due to viral gene expression and 7 to 8 kb capacity limit for the transport of therapeutic DNA. This review summarizes HC-Ad vector-related publications from the past 18 months that are mainly concerned with vector design/production and in vivo applications in different murine models.
