Gene Therapy is the introduction of normal genes into cells in place of missing or defective ones in order to correct genetic disorders.
Results of an international collaboration show promise for the future of motor neurone disease treatment efforts, as protective gene is identified.
Researchers have developed a new CRISPR technique, using a minigene, which was inserted into mouse DNA, resulting in improved liver disease symptoms.
Mice with congenital blindness have shown significant improvement in vision after undergoing a new gene therapy.
A study has demonstrated that exosomes can be used as nanocarriers for therapeutic contents, as a new type of gene therapy.
CAR T-cell therapy has caused quite a stir in the immunotherapy world, but it is a process that requires precision and care. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) has thus far been the stalwart technique for providing a check on copy numbers, but here Ping Jin explains why droplet digital PCR…
Professor Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford, delivered a speech at the MHRA’s 14th Annual Lecture in London, outlining his vision for the UK life sciences industry. Here, Nikki Withers summarises the key take-home messages from the talk, including how UK researchers and investors…
A recent study has shown that transplanting new inhibitory neurons may repair damaged brain circuits.
New cell experiments show more effective genetic 'cuts' that could one day become the foundation of more effective gene therapies.
An AAV-delivered gene therapy has demonstrated success in animal models of temporal lobe epilepsy, so could be a therapeutic option for human patients.
Researchers in the US have successfully produced a mouse model with a human MAPT gene to enable more accurate research into Alzheimer’s therapy.
Gene therapy for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy has safely stopped the muscle deterioration associated with the disease.
A study has demonstrated how to use CRISPR to deliver DNA to particular bacteria, which could be used as an alternative to antibiotics.
A study has revealed that using DNA-like molecules to repair gene mutations in models could act as a successful therapy for patients.
