Gene therapy

Originally gene therapy was a theoretical proposition which was embodied in the concept of genetic engineering. The concept of genetic engineering meant that it was possible to engineer an abnormal gene in order to effect a complete genetic cue. The haulmark of this concept was of course the development of the strategies for incorporation a foreign gene into the genome of the cell. The very first gene injection to be carried out in the human for treatment was made in 1994 using the vascular endothelial growth factor, although the method had been used with considerable success in agricultural sector to produced transgenic plants and animals.
