Gene therapy is a technique of therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid polymers as a drug into the cell of patient’s to treat disease. The polymers are targeted to possibly correct gene mutation. Gene therapy could be a way to fix a genetic problem at its source. By adding a corrected copy of a defective gene, gene therapy promises to help diseased tissues and organs work correctly. Usually a vector is used in the gene therapy, typically a virus, to deliver a gene to the cells where it is needed. Once it is inside, the cell's gene-reading machinery uses the information in the gene to build RNA and protein molecules. The proteins (or RNA) can then carry out their job in the cells.
