DNA molecules and human therapeutics
Danquah, Michael K., Ho, Jenny, Liu, Shan, & Forde, Gareth M. (2009) DNA molecules and human therapeutics. African Journal of Biotechnology, 8(25), pp. 7190-7195.
Nucleic acid molecules are championing a new generation of reverse engineered biopharmaceuticals. In terms of potential application in gene medicine, plasmid DNA (pDNA) vectors have exceptional therapeutic and immunological profiles as they are free from safety concerns associated with viral vectors, display non-toxicity and are simpler to develop. This review addresses the potential applications of pDNA molecules in vaccine design/development and gene therapy via recombinant DNA technology as well as a staged delivery mechanism for the introduction of plasmid-borne gene to target cells via the nasal route.
