Targeting cancers with specific and combined gene therapy and viro-therapy Gene-virotherapy is a combination of gene therapy and virotherapy, utilizing therapeutic gene armed oncolytic adenoviruses to target cancer cells. The oncolytic adenoviruses could specially replicate in cancer cells and directly lyze the cancer cells. The armed therapeutic genes could replicate together with the viruses and high expressed in the cancer cells. This combination makes the gene-viruses exhibit specially and potently anticancer effect in vitro and in vivo. We constructed the oncolytic adenovirus with antitumor genes acetylcholinesterase (AChE), hepatocellular carcinoma suppressor 1 (HCCS1) or TRAIL and tested their efficiency and specificity in cancer therapy. Human patients samples, cancer cell lines, primary fibroblast cells, primary epithelial cells and xenografts on nude mice were used in these studies. Oncolytic adenoviruses with therapeutic genes showed great efficiency in inhibiting gastric cancer, specific targeting liver cancer or eliminating lung cancer stem cells. These provided new approaches for cancer therapy.
