Despite various difficulties, the field of gene therapy, particularly with regard to cancer, has accumulated a tremendous amount of vital pre-clinical and clinical data. Gene Therapy of Cancer: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition fully updates the first edition with expert coverage of established and novel protocols involving both experimental and clinical approaches to cancer gene therapy. This state-of-the-art volume contains overviews of new concepts and strategies with chapters on regulatory and ethical issues, developments, problems and possible limitations of design and production of gene therapeutics as well as translational issues. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting edge and authoritative, Gene Therapy of Cancer: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition is an ideal guide for all those who wish to explore the fast-paced and critical study of nonviral, viral, experimental and clinical cancer gene therapy
