Description:
A new gene therapy method developed by University of Florida researchers, William W. Hauswirth, Ph.D. and Alfred S. Lewin, Ph.D., has the potential to reverse a common form of blindness that strikes young children. The technique works by replacing a malfunctioning gene in the eye with a working copy that supplies a protein needed for light-sensitive cells in the eye to function. The findings are published Monday, Jan. 23 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences online. Several complex and costly steps remain before the gene therapy technique can be used in humans, but once at that stage, it could have great potential to change lives.
