gene therapy

Gene therapy refers to the introduction of a foreign gene into a target cell to correct or compensate for the disease caused by defects and abnormal genes for therapeutic purpose. The three main forms of gene therapy are introducing the correct gene into the cell to replace the wrong mutant gene, repairing the wrong gene directly through gene editing, modifying the cells in vitro. The application of gene therapy is broad, with possible therapy of diseases caused by acquired genetic diseases such as cancers, recessive gene disorders such as muscular dystrophy, and certain viral infections such as AIDS.
