To determine if replicons could be effective for delivery of potentially beneficial proteins to the CNS, we have constructed and characterized a replicon encoding IL-10," researchers in the United States report.
"IL-10 was rapidly produced in tissue culture cells following in vitro infection with replicons encoding IL-10. Intrathecal inoculation of replicons encoding IL-10 into the non-injured CNS of mice transgenic for the poliovirus receptor...
