Slide 2

What is quality treatment? It is conceivable that quality treatment given to a grown-up could turn around a hereditary ailment. Assuming this is the case, would that treatment likewise keep any youngsters the individual had after quality treatment from acquiring the illness? Clarify why or why not, and what figures the answer would rely on upon.

Slide 3

What is Gene Therapy? The Human Genome Project may give data that can be utilized to supplant qualities that are deficient or missing in individuals with hereditary sicknesses exploratory method utilizing qualities to anticipate/treat hereditary maladies supplant a transformed quality with a solid one deactivating a quality that isn't working appropriately present another quality in the body to battle the infection http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/handbook/treatment/genetherapy

Slide 4

Germline Gene Therapy ordinary adaptation of quality is embedded into germ cells those germ cells will isolate typical forms of the quality any zygote created as a consequence of this germ cell will have a right form of the damaged quality and will keep passing it on to their posterity http://kidshealth.org/parent/framework/medicinal/gene_therapy.html

Slide 5

Somatic Cell Gene Therapy single inadequate cell removed from an individual's body utilitarian variant of quality brought into cell in a research facility cells imitate duplicates of cells with a remedied rendition of the quality is infused over into the patient the great quality closures with the patient and is not acquired by their posterity

Slide 6

In 1990, a 4 year old young lady named Ashi DiSilva was the primary patient to get quality treatment for SCID (serious joined immunodeficiency). She turned into a sound grown-up with an insusceptible framework that could battle off generally contaminations.

However… quality treatment is still in its initial stages and is a long way from flawlessness it must be utilized as a part of maladies brought on by a solitary quality breakdown numerous ailments are created by various qualities it can be difficult to get a decent quality to the particular place it should be more harm can be created by qualities being placed in the wrong place demise can come about because of diseases and intrusions of different infections http://www.wired.com/medtech/hereditary qualities/news/2007/08/gene_therapy http://genome.gsc.riken.go.jp/hgmis/drug/genetherapy.html

Slide 8

Ethical Issues Who chooses what is typical and what is a deformity? What sort of an effect will this have on individuals who are as of now living with these handicaps. Will this aggravate them feel about themselves? Quality treatment is costly so will just the rich have entry to treatment? What will happen to poor people? http://genome.gsc.riken.go.jp/hgmis/prescription/genetherapy.html
