Retroviral vectors (RVs) have been used for stable gene transfer into mammalian cells for more than 20 years. They’re relatively simple genome and structure are easy to use and are relatively safe for in vivo applications.
Currently, they have also been used in alternative efforts to enhance the body's own immune response to tumors; this treatment involves reinjecting tumor cells that have been UV irradiated, genetically manipulated, or admixed with non-specific adjuvants.
As a CRO, CRDMO, Esco Aster provides viral vector production services in varying grades--research/preclinical, clinical, and commercial, respectively. Choosing and producing the best viral vectors to be used for your desired applications can be difficult, but we are here to help every step of the way!
