The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is aware of the potential medical use of the HVJ-E (hemagglutinating virus of Japan - envelope) protein from the envelope of the Sendai virus, both for drug and gene delivery. However the HVJ-E protein from the envelope of the inactivated Sendai virus is not currently included in a marketing authorisation approved by MHRA.
