(4) Self-assembling amphiphiles for the controlled delivery of genes

Gene delivery

Gene delivery

Successful gene therapy relies on a rational design approach which considers the distinctive structural requirements that are necessary to create an efficient and safe gene carrier. Cationic lipids, polymers, and dendrimers are among the most promising synthetic non-viral vectors so far. Combination of their essential features led to the realization of hybrid systems for prospective use as gene vehicles.
