A new study published in the issue of Science Translational Medicine has reported that patients in the Ashkenazi Jewish population with Crohn's disease (a chronic inflammatory of the digestive system) are more likely to carry the LRRK2 gene mutation. The gene is the major genetic cause of Parkinson's disease.
Virotherapy capable of destroying tumor cells and activating anti-tumor immune reactions, and the use of engineered hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to deliver replacement genes that have the potential to cure blood diseases are among the key areas of gene therapy being advanced by German researchers and highlighted in a special issue of Human Gene Therapy, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The issue is available free on the Human Gene Therapy website.
The umbilical cords contains potentially lifesaving stem cells that can treat a host of blood-based cancers and other diseases. Yet the blood found in newborns' umbilical cords is almost always discarded as medical waste, rather than banked for future needs.
Researchers have shown that how the innate immune system, which responds more generally to dangers detected in the body, can be trained to remember past threats and respond more robustly to future challenges. The study results were in The Journal of Cell.
