Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to examine unilateral lung-selective gene transfer following the administration of naked plasmid DNA (pDNA) onto the pulmonary pleural surface in mice. Naked pDNA was administered intravenously, intraperitoneally, and instilled onto the right pulmonary pleural surface. Four hours later, right pulmonary pleural surface instillation of naked pDNA resulted in high gene expression in the right lung. On the contrary, intravenous and intraperitoneal administration of naked pDNA resulted in no detectable gene expression. After instilling naked pDNA onto the right or left pulmonary pleural surface, gene expressions in the applied lung were significantly higher than those in the other lung and tissues. In addition, gene expressions were detected only in the intrathoracic tissues, not in the intraperitoneal tissues. Four hours after instillation of naked pDNA onto the right pulmonary pleural surface, gene expression in the right lung was the highest, and thereafter gene expression in the right lung decreased gradually. This novel gene transfer method is expected to be a safe and effective treatment against serious lung diseases.
