Anti-TGF beta gene therapy for prevention of radiation induced lung fibrosis
Project management at the University of Würzburg:
The profibrotic cytokine TGF beta has been assigned a central role in pathogenesis of radiation induced lung fobrosis. The project has been designed to determine the possibility to avoid radiation induced lung fibrosis folowing partial lung irradiation in an in vivo model by antagonizing TGF beta by means of adenoviral gene transfer.
