AbstractAs a result of the growing interest in the use of viruses for gene therapy and vaccines, many virus-based products are being developed. The manufacturing of viruses poses new challenges for process developers and regulating authorities that need to be addressed to ensure quality, efficacy, and safety of the final product. The design of suitable purification strategies will depend on a multitude of variables including the vector production system and the nature of the virus. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the most commonly used purification methods for viral gene therapy vectors. Current chromatography options available for large-scale purification of γ-retrovirus, lentivirus, adenovirus, adeno-associated virus, herpes simplex virus, baculovirus, and poxvirus vectors are presented.
