  • Publication number: 20030143204
    Abstract: Described is a process for delivering an inhibitor directed against an expressible nucleic acid sequence in a mammal to inhibit RNA function. An RNA function inhibiting sequence that is specific to the expressible nucleic acid sequence in the mammal is made and inserted into a blood vessel in the mammal. The inhibitor is delivered to a cell wherein expression of the nucleic acid sequence is inhibited.

  • Publication number: 20030026841
    Abstract: An polyampholyte is utilized in a condensed polynucleotide complex for purposes of nucleic acid delivery to a cell. The complex can be formed with an appropriate amount of positive and/or negative charge such that the resulting complex can be delivered to the extravascular space and may be further delivered to a cell.

  • Publication number: 20020165183
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods for delivering a genetic immunogen, comprising a nucleic acid capable of expressing an antigen, optionally complexed with a polymer. The nucleic acid is delivered to the host via an intravascular, oral, buccal, dermal, nasal, or rectal route, where the complex transfects lymphoid tissues resulting in expression of an encoded antigen and induction of an antigen-specific immune response.
