Title
(EN) Method for transferring genes to the heart using AAV vectors
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to the use of adeno-associated virus vectors for the transfer of genes to the heart and vasculature. The vector preferably contains a gene encoding a protein which improves heart and vascular function during heart failure. In a specific embodiment, the vector is introduced into the heart and vasculature via a catheter, with the aid of fluoroscopy. The method and vectors for use therein provide for safe and stable gene expression of the transferred genes.
