Abstract

The aim of gene therapy is to introduce genetic information into target cells, in order to use the cell machinery for the production of the gene product. This might be used to correct for defecient genes and restore normal function, or to destroy cells by cytopathic or immunologic mechanisms. The vehicles used to introduce genes are called 'vectors'. For cancer therapy in experimental and clinical settings, attenuated adenoviruses are used. Urologic applications in The Netherlands are discussed.
