    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Cancer chemotherapy encompasses a large number of well-documented and clinically established methods for the treatment of malignant diseases. However, the efficacy of these approaches is often hampered by an insufficient therapeutic index, lack of specificity, and the emergence of drug-resistant cell subpopulations. One approach aimed at enhancing the selectivity of cancer chemotherapy for solid tumors relies on the application of gene therapy technologies.
