Gene therapy is an experimental treatment that involves introducing genetic material (genes) into a person’s cells to fight or prevent disease. In most gene therapy studies, a normal gene is inserted into the body to correct an abnormal gene that is causing disease. Getting the gene into the body tissues where it is needed is a challenging and complex problem that researchers are trying to solve. Researchers are studying gene therapy for a number of diseases, such as severe combined immunodeficiency, blindness, hemophilia, Parkinson's disease, cancer and even HIV.
