In contemporary medicine, the latency between basic scientific advancements and clinical application is disconcertingly brief. The rapid emergence of gene therapy for neurologic disorders is a remarkable example of such progress. This book edited by Chiocca and Breakefield provides a sophisticated authoritative overview of this exciting new area. The 550-page hardbound book is divided into 3 parts covering vectors and promoters, applications of gene therapy to neuro-oncology, and gene therapy in nonneoplastic disorders.
