1997). 4. ADENOVIRAL VECTORS: KEY FEATURES AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS In recent years adenoviral vectors have become very popular vectors for cancer gene therapy. As discussed earlier, the key reasons for this are the ease with which recombinant viruses can be generated and grown to very high titers (up to pfu/ml) in the laboratory. Adenoviruses have other characteristics which favor their use as vectors which include the very efficient receptor-mediated endocytosis and upon infection of cancer cells exhibit high level of transgene expression.
