The 1st single-topic annual convention on hepatology in Japan used to be held in November 2002 to debate cures for viral hepatitis and the prevention of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Bringing jointly researchers and clinicians from North the United States, Europe, Japan, and different elements of Asia, the convention integrated symposia at the hepatitis C replicon procedure, new antivirals that decrease or hinder the prevalence of HCC, and transplantation in situations of hepatitis B and C, in addition to new therapy modalities for viral hepatitis and preventative measures for HCC.

An SFFVp-based vector can mediate sustained multilineage gene expression through serial transplantations in mice . When the Friend–MCF-related U3 regions are combined with the nonrestrictive leader of MESV, novel vectors result which we named FMEV (Friend–MCF–MESV hybrid). These currently represent a reasonable choice for strong transgene expression in hematopoietic cells (Fig. 10A) [13,14]. The importance of improving enhancer strength became evident from comparative vector studies in the context of drug resistance gene transfer.
Studies with housekeeping promoters indicate that Sp1 binding sites can counteract silencing to some extent . The retroviral enhancers of MoMLV, MPSV, PCMV, and Friend–MCF viruses differ with respect to number, afﬁnity, and positioning of Sp1 binding sites [168,199]. The relevance to long-term expression remains to be shown. 1) might support long-term expression. However, silencing of MESV-leader-based vectors is also observed upon differentiation of embryonic stem cells permissive to vector expression in the undifferentiated state .
Internal Ribosome Entry The internal ribosomal entry site (IRES) was originally described in picorna viruses. The IRES is a complex domain of the RNA (the size of a few hundred base pairs), generating a speciﬁc structure allowing cap-independent initiation of translation. When introduced in front of the start codon of the transgene, bi- or even oligocistronic vectors can be generated [213,217–219]. Compared to internal promoters and alternative splicing, IRES control has the advantage of 22 Christopher Baum et al.
