to treat the chronic aspects of CF lung diseases. Gene therapy has shown significant promise not just for people living with cystic fibrosis, but for other genetic diseases. In this video, Mitch Drumm, PhD, a professor at Case Western Reserve University, answers questions from the CF community about what Gene therapy for diseases of the lung book future of gene editing could look like for CF.
Gene therapy (also called human gene transfer) is a medical field which focuses on the utilization of the therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid into a patient's cells as a drug to treat disease.
The first attempt at modifying human DNA was performed in by Martin Cline, but the first successful nuclear gene transfer in humans, approved by the National Institutes of Health, was performed in. but human gene therapy dreams of treating diseases by replacing or supplementing the product of defective or introducing novel therapeutic genes.
So definitely human gene therapy is an effective addition to the arsenal of approaches to many human therapies in the 21st century. Fig. 1: Proportion of protocol for human gene therapy trials relating. candidates for gene therapy. Table lists other diseases for which gene therapy is being considered.
VECTORS FOR GENE DELIVERY Appropriate methods to deliver DNA used in gene therapy are vital, as the targeted tissues must properly receive the appropriate genes.
Gene therapy can be carried out using naked DNA. Despite the hope that gene therapy can be used to treat cancer, genetic diseases, and AIDS, there are concerns that the immune system may attack cells treated by gene therapy, that the viral vectors could mutate and become virulent, or that altered genes might be passed to succeeding generations.
It is estimated that there will be approximatelydeaths caused by lung cancer in This technology will help in improving the quality of life of lung cancer patients as well as other cancers. Additionally, the gene therapy market is now a multi-million dollar industry.
Some of the first human gene therapy trials targeted diseases of the lung and provided important information that will continue to help shape future trials. Here we describe both cell and gene therapies for lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and alpha-1 antitrypsin disorder as well as fatty acid oxidation disorders that mimic sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Current Gene Therapy is a bi-monthly peer-reviewed journal aimed at academic and industrial scientists with an interest in major topics concerning basic research and clinical applications of gene and cell therapy of diseases.
Cell therapy manuscripts can also include application in diseases when cells have been genetically modified. A new study has demonstrated a way to deliver a nanoparticle-based gene therapy, in order to repair lungs damaged by chronic allergic asthma and to reduce inflammation that causes asthma attacks.
Cell therapy, defined as the administration of stem/progenitor cells to correct cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) dysfunction in the lung, is a comparatively new concept and may be an alternative or an addition to gene therapy. Key studies related to cell therapy and bioengineering will also be discussed.
are lacking. Because many genetic lung diseases are monogenic in nature, they are promising targets for treatment using gene-editing technologies.
Moreover, pulmonary genetic disorders are uniquely amenable to targeted gene-editing therapy because the lung is a barrier organ and is in direct contact with the external environment. In addition.
