A number of diverse gene therapy strategies are being evaluated in the search for novel therapeutic approaches to hematopoietic disease. In this review, we will limit our discussion to three areas of active research: the treatment of genetic diseases, the use of drug resistance gene vectors in autologous transplantation, and tumor immunization strategies in cancer. Although gene delivery remains a major challenge to gene therapy, recent modifications which improve gene transfer will also be addressed.
