Previous chapters have shown that there are a large number of therapeutic approaches under consideration for the gene therapy of cancer. Many of these have progressed into Phase I clinical trials. However, many of the early results are perceived to be disappointing in terms of low levels of gene transfer and systemic efficacy. In this concluding chapter, possible solutions to this state of unease are addressed, so that gene therapy of cancer can resume on its course to become a major contributor to clinical oncology in the years ahead.
