AAV Symposium: Characterization and Biodistribution in Gene Therapy
AAV Symposium: Characterization and Biodistribution in Gene Therapy
Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) are increasingly popular in gene therapy due to their mild immune response, ability to infect a broad range of cells, and overall safety (Naso et al., 2017). Due to the complexity of the delivery vector, a series of robust analytical approaches are required to ensure correct assembly and packaging prior to product release.
