Genome organisation of Adeno-associated viruses. The AAV genome is built of single-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (ssDNA), either positive- or negative-sensed, which is about 4.7 kilobase long. The genome comprises inverted terminal repeats (ITRs) at both ends of the DNA strand, and two open reading frames (ORFs): rep and cap (see figure 1) Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is a non-enveloped virus that can be engineered to deliver DNA to target cells, and has attracted a significant amount of attention in the field, especially in clinical-stage experimental therapeutic strategies

The purpose of this review is to provide an update on current advances in recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy for the treatment of HF, with emphasis on the progression towards clinical translation, as well as current approaches for optimising efficacy and therapeutic benefit. AAV as a Vector for Gene Therapy . Gene therapy can broadly be described as the transfer of an. Adenoviruses and Adeno-Associated Viruses (AAVs) are two types of viral vectors used for gene delivery. Both of these recombinant viral systems have the ability to infect a broad range of hosts, including dividing and non-dividing cells, without integrating with the host genome. However, there are several key distinctions between them, including: packaging capacity, level, onset and duration.
Recombinant adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors have rapidly advanced to the forefront of gene therapy in the past decade. The exponential progress of AAV-based vectors has been made possible by the isolation of several naturally occurring AAV serotypes and over 100 AAV variants from different animal species Many gene therapy clinical trials rely on retroviruses or adenoviruses to deliver the desired gene. Other viruses used as vectors include adeno-associated viruses, lentiviruses, pox viruses, alphaviruses, and herpes viruses Adeno-associated virus (AAV) - based delivery techniques may hold the key. In the simplest form, translating gene therapies from conceptual design to clinical trials involve identifying a therapeutic gene, finding a means to deliver it and identifying a suitable route of administration. However, until recently safe delivery of nucleic acid cargo (DNA or RNA) to target cells has been.
The number of gene therapy (GTx) modality therapies in development has grown significantly in the last few years. Adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based delivery approach has become most prevalent among other virus-based GTx vectors . AAV belongs to the group of human Parvovirus with a single-stranded DNA genome. The identification of AAV as a viral entity was reported 3 decades ago (1) Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is a small, non-enveloped virus that contains a single-stranded DNA genome. It was the first gene therapy drug approved in the Western world in November 2012 to treat patients with lipoprotein lipase deficiency. AAV made history and put human gene therapy in the forefront again
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is a small, non-pathogenic satellite virus that is believed to require a helper adenovirus for replication (Atchison et al., 1965). It is similar in structure to adenoviruses, but has a smaller icosahedral nucleocapsid. Researchers soon found that AAV's structural simplicity and non-pathogenic nature make recombinant AAV (rAAV) a useful gene therapy vector. The field of adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy has progressed rapidly over the past decade, with the advent of novel capsid serotype and organ-specific promoters, and an increasing understanding of the immune response to AAV administration. In particular, liver-directed therapy has made remarkable strides, with a number of clinical trials currently planned and ongoing in hemophilia A. Adeno‐associated virus (AAV), with its low pathogenicity, prolonged expression profile and ability to transduce multiple cell types, has become the leading gene therapy vector. Target diseases have moved beyond currently untreatable inherited dystrophies to common, partially treatable acquired conditions such as exudative age‐related macular degeneration and glaucoma, but use of the. Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is one of the most actively investigated gene therapy vehicles. It was initially discovered as a contaminant of adenovirus preparations [ 4, 5 ], hence its name. Simply put, AAV is a protein shell surrounding and protecting a small, single-stranded DNA genome of approximately 4.8 kilobases (kb)

Adeno-associated virus (AAV) has emerged as an attractive vector for gene therapy. The benefits of using AAV for gene therapy include long-term gene expression, the inability to autonomously replicate without a helper virus, transduction of dividing and nondividing cells, and the lack of pathogenicity from wild-type infections. A number of Phase I and Phase II clinical trials utilizing AAV. We have previously shown that adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2) undergoes anterograde axonal transport in rat and non-human primate brain. We screened other AAV serotypes for axonal transport.
