gene therapy without viruses

Sounds promising for all types of gene therapy, no specific mention of MS.



Gene Therapy without Viruses: A new, highly effective polymer may make gene therapy safer.

Katherine Bourzac - Technology Review - The promise of gene therapy has long been held up by the lack of a safe and effective way to insert the desired therapeutic genes into the right cells. To solve that problem, MIT researchers have developed a new polymer for gene ...

Researchers Trim Count of Human Genes to 20,000-25,000

BETHESDA, Md., Wed.., Oct. 20, 2004 - The International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium, led in the United States by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the Department of Energy (DOE), today published its scientific description of the finished human genome sequence, reducing the estimated number of human protein-coding genes from 35,000 to only 20,000-25,000, a surprisingly low number for our species.
