"Recombinant AAV vectors mediate efficient and sustained transgene expression in retinal tissues and offer a powerful approach to the local, sustained delivery of angiostatic proteins for the treatment of ocular neovascular disorders. The application of such strategies may also require regulated gene expression to minimize the potential for unwanted adverse effects. In this study, we have evaluated the effect of a hypoxia-responsive element (HRE) on the kinetics of recombinant adeno-associated (rAAV)-mediated reporter gene expression in murine models of retinal and choroidal neovascularization,"...
