Details

The number of disorders treated with gene therapy has increased from a few in 1990 to more than 900 in 2009. Of all the technologies provided by the new biology, gene therapy holds the promise of unlimited potential for curing disease and reversing the effects of aging.

Gene Therapy, Revised Edition discusses the science behind gene therapy, as well as the ethical and legal issues associated with this therapy. Featuring updated and revised material—including many new full-color figures and photographs—this timely resource introduces two new chapters that focus on genomic research and the many recent gene therapy clinical trials. Additional genetic diseases are also highlighted, including retinal dystrophy, a form of blindness that is now treated with gene therapy in a clinical trial. Written in clear and accessible language, Gene Therapy, Revised Edition covers cell biology, biotechnology, and other topics relevant to gene therapy.
