Over the last decade gene therapy has evolved as a promising method for the treatment of many diseases. To deliver the genetic material into cells, a viral vector can be utilized. One of the most efficient vectors available at this moment is the adenovirus. Incorporation of specific transgenes into the genome of the adenovirus ensures that the genetic material will be delivered into the nucleus after viral infection. One multigenetic disease which receives much attention in the research area is cancer. Many attempts are made to tackle this still largely incurable disease with gene therapy. The adenovirus may serve as a vector to deliver toxic genes to the malignant cells, but, on the other hand, this virus can also be used as a tool by itself to kill these cells. In the latter approach, the virus may replicate specifically in tumor cells, causing cell lysis and release of new virus progeny.
