Gene Therapy

Gene therapy is a medical method used to treat or prevent disease by addressing the underlying genetic problem. Gene therapy treatments enable medical professionals to treat a condition by altering a person's genetic makeup rather than using medications or surgery. The three primary subtypes of gene therapy are ex vivo, in vivo, and in situ. Ex vivo gene therapy entails removing the patient's harmed cells and genetically altering them. Another name for this type of therapy, which is especially beneficial for blood diseases, is in vitro gene therapy. One final gene therapy strategy involves administering the viral vector directly to the patient.
