Radiology's role in gene therapy: Image and deliver
... Viruses attach to specific cells and deploy their contents
into the cells, including any genes they might be carrying. But viruses might also attack the cells. An alternative and safer delivery method is via liposomes, which are commonly used to deliver medicines to the body. "Radiologists use image guida...

...works. You end up with small vesicles in which the contents
stay mostly inside. This is important if the process is to be vaguely analogous to biological cell division," he said. "Now that we have a proof-of-principle that growth and division is possible in a purely physical-chemical system, we are working on...
