Gene Therapy

Gene therapy uses genes to treat or prevent disease. In the future, this technique may allow doctors to treat a disorder by inserting a gene into a patient’s cells instead of using drugs or surgery. Several approaches to gene therapy are currently being tested by the researchers including: Replacing a mutated gene that causes disease with a healthy copy of the gene; Inactivating or “knocking out” a mutated gene that is functioning improperly; Introducing a new gene into the body to help fight a disease. Although gene therapy is a promising treatment option for a number of diseases (including inherited disorders, some types of cancer, and certain viral infections), the technique remains risky and is still under study to make sure that it will be safe and effective. Gene therapy is currently only being tested for diseases that have no other cures.
