Abstract

Irradiation therapy for lung cancer is mostly restricted to conventional methods. To improve therapeutic ratio, we have combined a treatment planning and a gene therapy approach. Three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy is described as carried out by methods of gene therapy for radiation protection using the manganese-superoxide-dismutase transgene delivered by inhalation gene transfer. These methods may improve therapeutic outcomes in lung cancer.
