Microglia can be used as a therapeutic vehicle to transport the thymidine kinase gene and gadolinium-based silica nanoparticles into brain tumors. In vivo MRI shows that, as soon as 24 h after systemic injection, contrast agent-labeled microglia are efficiently chemoattracted to human glioma implanted in the brains of nude mice. Systemic injection of a thymidine kinase substrate induces a significantly prolonged survival time of the mice.
