Gene Therapy

  • Manzoor M. Khan


Although considered a modern therapeutic procedure, the theory of gene therapy goes back many decades. Historically, gene therapy has always been a part of science fiction with hope that its clinical applications will be realized. In the literature, these proposals go back many decades, and many have not yet been achieved. In ancient cultures, breeding plants and animals for certain goals was a way of life. Selective breeding practices were established before the development of modern genetics. The transfer of genes within DNA was first reported by Avery, Macleod and McCarthy in 1944, and a few years later, it was observed that viruses possess the ability to transfer genes. On the basis of the ability of viruses to transfer genes, Tatum in 1966 hypothesized the role of viruses in gene therapy and the possibility of isolating or synthesizing genes and inserting them into the organs with defective genes. Aposhian in 1969 suggested the use of genes in place of drugs to treat...
