Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The potential use of genes as therapeutics has attracted great attention to treat severe and debilitating diseases. Gene therapy is the method of treating diseases using genes so that the patient’s somatic cells can produce the specic proteins that are lacking. This will prevent the limitations concerning the administration of therapeutic proteins. It is an approach for treating diseases, or ultimately preventing a disease, by replacing defective genes, introducing new genes, or changing the endogenous expression of genes.
