    Abstract: Lung cancer is a leading cause of cancer death due to the
    high incidence of metastasis; therefore, novel and effective
    treatments are urgently needed. A current strategy is
    cancer-specific targeted gene therapy. Although many
    identified that cancer-specific promoters are highly
    specific, they tend to have low activity compared with
    the ubiquitous cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter, limiting
    their application. We developed a targeted gene therapy
    expression system for lung cancer that is highly specific
    with strong activity. Our expression vector uses the
    survivin promoter, highly expressed in many cancers but
    not normal adult tissues. We enhanced the survivin
    promoter activity comparable to the CMV promoter in
    lung cancer cell lines using an established platform
    technology, whereas the survivin promoter remained weak
    in normal cells. In mouse models, the transgene was
    specifically expressed in the lung tumor tissue, compared
    with the CMV promoter that was expressed in both
    normal and tumor tissues. In addition, the therapeutic
    gene BikDD, a mutant form of pro-apoptotic Bcl2
    interacting killer, induced cell killing in vitro, and
    inhibited cell growth and prolonged mouse survival
    in vivo. Importantly, there was virtually no toxicity when
    BikDD was expressed with our expression system. Thus,
    the current report provides a therapeutic efficacy and safe
    strategy worthy of development in clinical trials treating
    lung cancer
