2021: TMA launches a holistic and multidisciplinary Gene therapy educational initiative
Gene Therapy is a fast growing field with therapeutic options already available for clinicians and patients. A review of ongoing clinical trials shows the extreme dynamism of clinical research. Around 200 clinical trials are ongoing in almost 80 diseases. The therapeutic applications encompass almost all medical fields. Gene therapy has the potential to revolutionize different cancer therapies. The correction of severe metabolic or hematologic inherited diseases are offering new hopes to help patients suffering from debilitating diseases. In Onco-hematology the CAR-T cells are also bringing new hopes and several approaches have been implemented in clinical practice. In Duchenne muscular dystrophy, gene editing by Cas9 and gRNAs for exon snipping may offer a path to future development of a clinically applicable therapeutic option. Cardiology, Dermatology, Neurology, Ophthalmology are also explored, hoping to bring innovative solutions for patient care.
