    Cationic lipid vesicle-mediated gene transfer has become common for in vitro gene delivery. However, the transfection efficiency is often impaired by serum. DDAB (dime-thyldioctadecyl ammonium bromide) lipid vesicle-mediated gene transfer, which we previously reported, has the same problem. To...

    Cationic liposome-mediated gene delivery to tumors has met with only limited success due to the low transfection efficiency and lack of target specificity. We developed a gene delivery system for HER-2-overexpressing cells by adding modified anti-HER-2 Fab' fragments to liposome/ DNA complexes...
