An Introduction to Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy
In addition, An Introduction to Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy:
- Covers new frontiers in gene therapy, animal models, vectors, gene targeting, and ethical/legal considerations
- Provides organ-based reviews of current studies in gene therapy for monogenetic, multifactoral or polygenic disorders, and infectious diseases
- Includes bold-faced terms, key concepts, summaries, and lists of helpful references by subject in each chapter
- Contains appendices on commercial implications and a review of the history of gene therapy
This textbook offers a clear, concise writing style, drawing upon the expertise of the authors, all renowned researchers in their respective specialties of molecular medicine. Researchers in genetics and molecular medicine will all find An Introduction to Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy to be an essential guide to the rapidly evolving field of gene therapy and its applications in molecular medicine.
