Terapia genowa chorób układu nerwowego
Gene therapy of nervous system diseases. Recent advances have increased our molecular understanding of the central nervous system (CNS), in both health and disease. In order to realize the clinical benefits of these findings, new molecular-based therapies need to be developed, such as CNS gene therapy. Gene therapy is a promising approach for the treatment of neurological disorders. Although the field has suffered setbacks, it remains an attractive technology for providing new therapies in the post-genomic world. The development of new vectors, and their extensive application in animal models of CNS disease, provides evidence suggesting that gene therapy will eventually become an accepted clinical option.
