Gene Therapy And Uses

Alhwili, Malak Hussien (2019-04-19)

Gene therapy is an experimental technique that 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 patients cells instead of using drugs or surgery. Researchers are testing several approaches to gene therapy, including: 1. Replacing a mutated gene that causes disease with a healthy copy of the gene. 2. Inactivating, or “knocking out” a mutated gene that is functioning improperly. Introducing a new gene into the body to help fight a disease
