Gene therapy has revolutionized medicine since the early 1990s and is one of the most promising fields in medicine. In the coming years it will continue to become more relevant in the treatment and cure of some of the most severe diseases and disorders that affect humans.

What is gene therapy and how does it work?

Gene therapy is the means through which new healthy genetic material is inserted into human cells to modify faulty, corrupted, or missing genes. To deliver genetic material to target cells, scientists use a neutralized virus that can be engineered to modify genetic conditions such as cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, heart disease, and more. A vital difference between this vehicle virus and other viruses is, this neutralized agent doesn’t threaten human health because it cannot replicate in the body without external help.
