Gene therapy has made a significant progress in clinical translation over the past few years with several gene therapy products currently approved or anticipating approval for clinical use. Cardiac gene therapy lags behind that of other areas of diseases, with no application of cardiac gene therapy yet approved for clinical use. However, several clinical trials for gene therapy targeting the heart are underway, and innovative research studies are being conducted to close the gap. The second edition of Cardiac Gene Therapy in Methods in Molecular Biology provides protocols for cutting-edge methodologies used in these studies. In this chapter, we discuss recent updates on cardiac gene therapy studies and provide an overview of the chapters in the book.
