Abstract BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease remains a significant global health burden despite revolutionary improvements in endovascular techniques over the past decade. The durability of intervention for critical limb ischaemia is poor, and the condition is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. To address this deficiency, alternative therapeutic options are being explored. Advances in the fields of gene therapy and therapeutic angiogenesis have led to these being advocated as potential future treatments. METHODS: Relevant medical literature from PubMed, Embase, the Cochrane Library and Google Scholar from the inception of these databases to June 2011 was reviewed. RESULTS: Encouraging outcomes in preclinical trials using a variety of proangiogenic growth factors have led to numerous efficacy and safety studies. However, no clinical study has shown significant benefit for gene therapy over placebo. CONCLUSION: Identifying the optimal site for gene delivery, choice of vector and duration of treatment is needed if gene therapy is to become a credible therapeutic option for peripheral arterial disease.
