Stunning gene therapy breakthrough driven by great dedication and graft | Robin McKie

We need more than ever to celebrate advances in medical science – though they may take years to emergeThere has been a surprising outbreak of the use of the c-word among medical researchers over the past few days. Normally cautious in their language, they have nevertheless been wielding the term “cure” when discussing the long-term potential of two separate treatments for inherited ailments that were announced last week. Such enthusiasm is striking.In one case, scientists based at St Bartholomew ’s, London – who have been working on the inherited bleeding disorder haemophilia A –outlined how they had used a virus to carry the gene for the blood-clotting chemical, factor VIII (which patients lack) to their livers. Production of the missing chemical was restored and their bleedin...
