You didnt say what species you are trying to transfect into however for
gene therapy using the mouse model and in humans, viruses have been
used.  In addition to the following reference try looking up articles
with the key word gene therapy.

Culver, Kenneth et al. "Lymphocytes as cellular vehicles for gene therapy
in mouse and man"  Proc Natl Acad Sci, Vol 88 pp 3155-3159 April 1991.
