New Vector Production Methods

A recombinant hybrid virus which includes: (a) a deleted adenovirus vector genome having the adenovirus 5′ and 3′ cis-elements for viral replication and encapsidation and a deletion in an adenovirus genomic region selected from the polymerase region and/or the preterminal protein region, wherein the deletion essentially prevents the expression of a functional polymerase and/or preterminal protein from the deleted region and the hybrid virus does not otherwise express a functional polymerase protein; and (b) a recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector genome flanked by the adenovirus vector genome sequences of (a), wherein the recombinant AAV vector genome includes an AAV packaging sequence and a heterologous nucleic acid sequence, wherein the heterologous nucleic acid sequence is flanked by 5′ and 3′ AAV inverted terminal repeats.
