Biological agents, including peptides and gene delivery systems (recombinant adenoviral vectors), suffer from a relative lack of native targeting capacity. Improvement of their targeting capacity could significantly increase the efficiency of these agents to provide therapeutic effects. Selective targeting of an anti-oxidant peptide to the vasculature in the SHRSP and administration of a variety of adenovirus (Ad) 35-based vectors into transgenic mice has lead to a significant enhancement in both the effectiveness of the anti-oxidant treatment and increased understanding of the requirements needed for the generation of a successfully targeted Ad35 vector. This helps understanding of the requirements for a successful treatment for cardiovascular disease and cancer.
