Abstract

The past decade has represented a period of high expectations for cardiovascular gene transfer on the basis of the findings from preclinical experiments and promising early clinical results. Yet, randomized studies have not demonstrated similar results. Do these poor results mean that gene transfer for ischemic cardiovascular disease has failed in its promise, or do they merely signify the inherent challenges of a pioneering field? In this paper we briefly review the clinical experience of gene transfer for ischemic cardiovascular disease and propose future directions for research.
