Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh reported the first study to achieve success with gene therapy for the treatment of congenital muscular dystrophy ( CMD ) in mice. Moreover, their results ...


Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have devised a new virus-based gene therapy delivery system to help fight cancer. Researchers say their findings will help overcome hurdles that have hindered gene the ...


Researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine developed a technique for inserting genes into specific sites on the genome in liver cells. The genes are inserted into non-coding regions of the ...


A study suggests that restoring a gene often silenced in lung cancer causes the cells to self-destruct. The research focused on a gene known as WWOX, which is lost or silenced in a large majority o ...


Investigators reported positive interim results of a gene therapy clinical trial for patients with Parkinson's disease. Neurologix's 12-patient, dose-escalating Phase I trial is the world's first ...


A gene responsible for the production of a protein called vasostatin may prove a promising new way of treating pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths in th ...


Biomedical engineers at Duke University have devised a method to arrest toxic leakages of genetically engineered viruses that have plagued attempts to use gene therapy against cancerous tumors. The pr ...


A new gene therapy technique that has shown promise in skin disease and hemophilia might one day be useful for treating muscular dystrophy. The study is published in the Proceedings of the Nation ...


In a study, published in the Nature Biotechnology, researchers led by a team of scientists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center have devised a novel strategy that uses stem cell-based gene therap ...


Researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have developed a new method of signaling therapeutic genes to turn "off" or "on," a mechanism that could enable scientists to fine-tune genetic- and stem cel ...


Improved materials may allow stents to better deliver beneficial genes to patients with heart disease, by reducing the risk of inflammation that often negates initial benefits. The new technique, usi ...


Researchers at University of California, Berkeley, have shown that viruses can be forced to evolve in ways to benefit humans. The adeno-associated virus, or AAV, is a common, though innocuous, res ...


Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have successfully used gene therapy to accelerate muscle regeneration in experimental animals with muscle damage, suggesting this techniq ...


Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have used gene therapy to either completely abolish or significantly inhibit tumor progression in a mouse model of ovarian cancer. Th ...


Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have successfully protected mice against the damaging effects that radiation can have on bone marrow using gene therapy. Based on these r ...
