ARTICLE #1 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Development of new polymer delivery vehicles for gene therapy
Journal of the American Chemical Society

MIT scientists are reporting synthesis and laboratory tests of a promising new group of degradable polymer delivery vehicles for gene therapy. The polymers are improved versions of materials first described in 2000 that deliver genes efficiently to specific cells.

The lack of a safe, efficient delivery system for DNA has been a major barrier to clinical use of gene therapy. Viruses and various polymer materials have been used in efforts to insert therapeutic genes into diseased cells. However, those systems have disadvantages. Some of the polymer materi
