GOMEZ PEREZ, L. et al. Gene therapy: is possible a vaccine for prostate cancer?. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.7, pp.705-713. ISSN 0210-4806.

Background: New approaches for prostate cancer are needed due to limitations of current therapies for the treatment in advanced stages of the disease. In fact, there is no effective treatment for these patients. Development in molecular biology research on prostate cancer has improved the knowledge of common alterations encoded in DNA sequence, which may be useful as targets for prostate cancer approach. In this review we give an overview of current gene therapy concepts, the most common gene alterations in prostate cancer and the gene therapy treatment strategies.

Keywords : Gene therapy; Prostate cancer; Viral vectors.
