RATIONALE: Inserting the interleukin-12 gene into a person's cancer cells may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of interleukin-12 gene when injected into the tumors of patients with liver metastases secondary to colorectal cancer.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the toxicity and maximum tolerated dose of intratumoral adenoviral vector-delivered interleukin-12 gene in patients with liver metastases secondary to colorectal cancer . - Determine the tumor response in patients treated with this regimen. - Determine the immune response in patients treated with this regimen.
