Abstract

Delivery of viral vectors directly into the central nervous system (CNS) has emerged as an important tool for the refinement of gene therapy. Intrathecal delivery by direct lumbar puncture in conscious rodents offers a minimally invasive approach that avoids tissue damage and/or destruction. Here we describe delivery of small quantities of viral vector product to the intrathecal space of rodents via direct lumbar puncture aided by a catheter.
