Lentiviral vectors are useful for gene transfer to dividing and nondividing cells. Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) vectors transduce most human cell types with good efficiency and may have advantages for clinical gene therapy applications. This article reviews significant progress in the development and refinement of FIV vector systems.
