    Gene therapy is a complex process involves incorporation of specific engineered genes into the affected cells where different kinds of viruses are used as vectors like retroviruses, adenoviruses, adeno-associated viruses, herpes simplex viruses. Genetics deals with gene sciences and its disorders. Genetics is an emerging group of sciences, which involves medicine, genetic engineering, and other biological sciences. Disorders in gene composition, called mutation may result in genetic disorders that need gene therapy treatment. Failure of treatment succeeds the mutant genes to offspring causing hereditary diseases or disorders.

    Thank you for the tip about keeping track of your child’s symptoms as well as what happens at medical appointments. My sister has a son that she thinks might have a health problem but isn’t sure. I think she should look at other ways of figuring out if he has a genetic disorder.

  • Andrea Blumenthal says:

    Why not seek a referral to a Clinical Geneticist?
