Final Report - EPI-VECTOR (Episomal vectors as gene delivery systems for therapeutic application)

Project ID: 511965
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the EPI-VECTOR project which aimed to develop extra-chromosomal gene delivery systems for gene therapy and evaluate protocols for their safe use in preclinical model systems. As outlined by the report, unlike the major systems that are being used at present, their system used only components of human origin. This will prevent any complications from using DNA or proteins from viruses. Also, their system will not disrupt the host chromosomes, but instead provide a vector that mimics their behaviour.
