Cancer gene therapy is rapidly moving from the laboratory to the clinic. A continuous flow of laboratory results are leading to novel cancer therapeutic programmes. This text describes both the laboratory and preclinical studies and the clinical opportunities that are being developed at the end of the 20th century. It describes multiple modalities of treatment and multiple methods used to transfer anti-cancer genes into cancer cells, and to protect normal cells from cancer treatments.

This textbook provides a review of gene therapy of cancer
We have tried to place under one cover a comprehensive review of the rapidly changing field of the gene therapy of cancer. Chapters emphasize the scientific basis of gene therapy, using immune, oncogene, antisense, prodrug activating and drug resistance gene targets. Other chapters discuss therapeutic approaches and clinical applications. We believe this will be a valuable and up to date reference for the novice and the accomplished expert in the field.
