We performed a clinical trial of gene therapy in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme based on retroviral vector-mediated combined delivery of interleukin-2 and thymidine kinase of herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1. Treatment consisted of intratumor injection of retroviral vector-producing cells, followed by intravenous ganciclovir administration. The primary endpoints of the study were the evaluation of the safety of the treatment and demonstration of transduction of tumor cells. Here, we report details on the clinical protocol and the methods used.

Abstract

We performed a clinical trial of gene therapy in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme based on retroviral vector-mediated combined delivery of interleukin-2 and thymidine kinase of herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1. Treatment consisted of intratumor injection of retroviral vector-producing cells, followed by intravenous ganciclovir administration. The primary endpoints of the study were the evaluation of the safety of the treatment and demonstration of transduction of tumor cells. Here, we report details on the clinical protocol and the methods used.
