Viral vectors are useful tools used by molecular biologists to deliver genetic material into cells. The Viral Vectors Market Analysis and Opportunities report reveals that viral vectors comprise a rising market that is expected to continue to grow as usage increases and novel technologies enter the market.

Viral vectors are the most effective means of gene transfer to modify specific cells or alter the expression of therapeutic genes. The choice of viral vector depends on the efficiency of transgene expression, ease of production, safety, toxicity, and stability. Viral vector technology is used in gene therapy and vaccines. It is an exciting and interesting time to be involved in the viral vector industry.

Science is moving ahead and now the industry needs to industrialize and standardize the manufacturing and commercialization of products. The industry is moving in the direction of a standardized set-up and a closed automated system. This is especially true in gene therapy.

Consequently, gene therapy products are transforming the treatment of cancers and genetic diseases. Viral vectors do not cause disease since they have been modified by removing the genes involved in replication and are replaced with therapeutic genes. Viral vectors are genetically stable, non-toxic for host cells and safe to handle.

Viruses attack the host and introduce genetic material as part of the replication cycle. The genetic material contains basic instructions for the cell to reproduce, hijacking the body's normal production machinery to serve the needs of the virus. Thus, additional copies of the virus are produced leading to more cells becoming infected.

Then why use viruses for gene therapy? - because viruses could be good vehicles to transport good genes into the human cell. Scientists remove the genes in the virus that cause disease and replace them with genes encoding the desired effect.

Many gene therapy clinical trials rely on retroviruses or adenoviruses to deliver the desired gene. Other viruses used as vectors include adeno-associated viruses, lentiviruses, pox viruses, alphaviruses, and herpes viruses. These viruses differ in how well they transfer genes to the cells they recognize and are able to infect, and whether they alter the cell's DNA permanently or temporarily.

Viral vectors are defined by three components:

  • The protein capsid and/or envelope
  • The transgene of interest to produce the desired effect
  • The regulatory cassette - which is combined elements that control stable or transient somatic expression of the transgene
