Cancer Gene Therapy

Genes are used to treat illness. Gene therapy works by getting genes into cancer cells, which is a very difficult task. To overcome this difficulty still, research is going on to develop different types of gene therapy to cure cancer. Basically, the gene is carried to cancer cell through a carrier called vectors. Common type of carrier used in gene therapy is viruses so that they can easily enter the cells and deliver genetic material.  Genes play a vital role in cell as; they are only responsible for cell growth, function and divide. The main aim of gene therapy is to replace abnormal or absent genes with healthy one that make cell to produce useful proteins. Finally, it can say that gene therapy is for cell survival.

  • Encourages cell to function properly
  • Repair damaged genes
  • Stops cell multiplying
