Gene Therapy Approved By Europe

2 posts in this topic

A treatment which corrects errors in a person's genetic code has been approved for commercial use in Europe for the first time.

The European Commission has given Glybera marketing authorisation, meaning it can be sold throughout the EU.

It is a gene therapy for a rare disease which leaves people unable to properly digest fats.

The manufacturers say it will be available next year.

Gene therapy has a simple premise. If there is a problem with part of a patient's genetic code then change the code.
