We review the use of lentiviral vectors in current human gene therapy applications that involve genetic modification of nondividing tissues with integrated transgenes. Safety issues, including insertional mutagenesis and replication-competent retroviruses, are discussed. Innate cellular defenses against retroviruses and their implications for human gene therapy with different lentiviral vectors are also addressed.
