Synopsis: Considers the genetic basis of disease and gene therapies, concentrating in detail on specific genetic illnesses, such as AIDS, cancer and cardiovascular diseases, and their treatment. This text should be of interest to pharmacists and to those involved in the biological or medical sciences.
From the Back Cover: Gene therapy is likely to have an enormous impact on medicine in the future. Many diseases are known to have a genetic component, whether the result of a specific gene defect or the combination of complex genetic factors. The concept of using DNA as a drug is now a reality, and healthcare professionals need to appreciate this technology. Gene Therapy provides an introduction to this growing area of therapeutics. The technology behind gene therapy, the development of new gene delivery methods and vectors, and the identification of target genes are discussed. Examples of how the approach is being used in clinical medicine to treat diseases such as cancer, AIDS, cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis are included. Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts, this text is valuable to pharmacy and biomedical students, practising clinicians and pharmacists and other healthcare professionals with an interest in DNA and its therapeutic potential. Gavin Brooks is Reader in Cardiovascular Biology at the School of Animal and Microbial Sciences, University of Reading, UK, and was editor of Biotechnology in Healthcare, also published by the Pharmaceutical Press.
