  • Gene therapy
  • Inserted into a VIRUS and inhaled
    • Inserted in bacterial PLASMID
      • Coated with LIPOSOMES
    • Immune system can attack the virus vector and produce antibodies
      • Introduced gene can be regarded as foreign
  • Deliver the gene using a suitable vector -
  • Insert the gene into a bacteria, virus or liposomes and inhale into the lungs
    • Therapeutic effect lasts for a few days
      • must be inserted into gametes to produce permanent genetic change
