    DescriptionGene therapy is briefly introduced as an experimental treatment in which genetic material is introduced into a person's cells to fight a disease related to altered genes. In this review of recent experimental research and clinical trials, international contributors to nine chapters present findings on gene therapy strategies relating to treating breast and other cancers; understanding the mechanisms of action involved; delivery systems for enhanced gene therapy (e.g., vaccines, pulsed-high intensity focused ultrasound, polymer- based vectors); and the study of cancer in dogs and cats rather than in artificially-created tumors in laboratory animals as better models of cancer in humans as well as pets.
