Enzyme delivered in smaller package protects cells from radiation damage

...at intravenous gene therapy delivery of the enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) could protect mice from whole body irradiation, and in preparation for a potential clinical trial of systemic MnSOD in humans, the University of Pittsburgh and Stanford researchers, led by Joel S. Greenberger, M.D., profe...

Intravenous gene therapy protects normal tissue of mice during whole-body radiation

..., mice were used to test the protective effects of manganese superoxide dismutase plasmid liposome (MnSOD-PL) gene therapy on the bone marrow during whole-body irradiation. The researchers found that in a control group of mice that received an initial 9 Gy dose of radiation there was 80 percent survival at 30 ...

Jumping gene could provide non-viral alternative for gene therapy

...sposons to deliver a radio-protective gene, called manganese superoxide dismutase, to potentially protect normal tissue from radiation damage," Dr. Kaminski says. In cancer, he suspects gene therapy will focus on this type of modification of normal tissue for protective purposes as well as manipulating the ...
