These barriers may weigh differently on the final probability, depending on vector type, but if the probability of vector–target cell contact is low to start with, the efficacy of the overall delivery process will be low as well, independent of vector type. Nonviral plasmid delivery with lipoplexes has been reported to be a mass action process [86], a statement that certainly also applies to other vector types (and drugs in general) if the frequency (or probability) of vector-target cell contact is a limiting barrier.

In parenteral administration, the choice is between local (orthotopic) and systemic routes. Success with biological vector targeting exploiting receptor–ligand-type interactions upon systemic administration has been discussed briefly before. However, the above considerations for cell culture, where diffusion has been defined as a limiting barrier, suggest that the probability of vector–target-cell contact upon systemic administration will be even orders of magnitude lower than in vitro. g. blood flow) can carry vectors away from the target site.
