Final Report - GIANT (Gene therapy: an integrated approach for neoplastic treatment)

Project ID: 512087
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the GIANT project which received funding under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Its main aim was to provide an international resource to apply innovative technologies for modification of existing gene therapy vectors, focusing on increased targeting and decreased vector immunogenicity. It would address the current shortcomings in gene therapy for human prostate cancer by developing and testing vectors both in a pre-clinical and clinical setting.

In the introductory part the report covers some information about gene therapy applications and goes on with stating the main aim of the project, as well as how the project will address the shortcomings of the existing gene therapy treatments and the innovative methods that it will introduce. The report then covers a short summary of the objectives of each of the six Work packages (WPs) that the project consists of. The organisational structure of the project, as well as its main outcomes are also stated.
