Smile Gene stories in the News and on UK TV

Just thought I would share this with you all

HORIZON - THE RISE AND FALL OF GENE THERAPY
Jesse Gelsinger died because a gene therapy experiment went terribly wrong. The teenager had been suffering from a rare genetic disorder and agreed to take part in a medical trial. Horizon tells Jesse's sad story, Thursday 27 February, 9pm, BBC Two: http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/science/news...ialerror.shtml

Scientists have just developed a new way to carry out gene therapy without the risks of current methods. Instead of using viruses, researchers at Imperial College London opted for a combination of microbubbles and ultrasound: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/2780325.stm

What if, in the future, doctors will able to deliver gene therapy safely? What kinds of possibilities could this open up? Might the technique one day even be used for cosmetic purposes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/science/news...ure_body.shtml
