Polymeric gene delivery : principles and applications / edited by Mansoor M. Amiji.

Boca Raton : CRC Press, c2005.
686 p. : ill. ; 27 cm.
Summary note:
"Polymeric Gene Delivery: Principles and Applications is the first comprehensive book to specifically address polymeric gene delivery systems. It emphasizes the versatility of polymeric delivery systems, including the potential for biocompatibility, the ability to design their formulation and geometry for a specific purpose, and the ease of modification to the surface of polymeric carriers. Divided into five sections that deal with challenges and opportunities in gene delivery and the efficient delivery of genes into somatic cells using polymeric vectors, Polymeric Gene Delivery: Principles and Applications is an up-to-date guide for researchers in the field and those interested in entering this dynamic field."--BOOK JACKET.
