As says the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy: “Gene therapy is the use of genetic material to treat genetic diseases. This may involve adding a wild type copy of the gene (gene addition) or altering a gene with mutation to the wild type gene (gene editing). To get the gene into the genome inside the cells, modified viruses or other vectors are used.
Some developments that have been crucial for gene and cell therapies are gene editing, induced pluripotent (iPS) cells and safer viral vectors for gene delivery.”
Texcell offers a large panel of tests and methods to ensure the safety of gene therapy products.
