Will gene therapy one day become the ultimate application of genetic technology? Gene Therapy, the newest booklet in the Special Topics in Biology Series, addresses this question by exploring gene therapy as a complex technology for delivering therapeutic genes as a way to treat and cure human genetic diseases. Author Mary Colavito provides an overview of the basic science involved in gene therapy methods and chronicles the history of gene therapy by discussing successful and ongoing gene therapy treatments as well as adverse outcomes in some cases of gene therapy. Also discussed are challenges that must be overcome for gene therapy to become a more reliable and readily accessible approach for treating a multitude of genetic diseases that affect humans. A list of web resources and relevant print publications are provided at the end of this Special Topics Booklet from Benjamin Cummings.
