(ANSA) - Rome, September 17 - Gene therapy, which aims to
correct health problems at the body's most basic level, will
soon see a revolution, says Luigi Notarangelo, a professor at
Harvard Medical School in Boston.
That's because the processes for correcting and reducing
genetic diseases in patients will be greatly assisted by a new
'virus shuttle' to better insert genes into malfunctioning
cells.
''There has been a considerable effort in recent years to
try to find new ways to more safely insert the gene into the
cell,'' particularly in cancer research, said Notarangelo, who
spoke Tuesday at a conference in Florence.
''We are still in the pre-clinical phase, but the results
from the laboratories are excellent''.
