          Abstract

          Considered by some to be among the simpler forms of life, viruses represent highly evolved natural vectors for the transfer of foreign genetic information into cells. This attribute has led to extensive attempts to engineer recombinant viral vectors for the delivery of therapeutic genes into diseased tissues. While substantial progress has been made, and some clinical successes are over the horizon, further vector refinement and/or development is required before gene therapy will become standard care for any individual disorder.
