During the HIV virus is known as a dangerous virus that causes AIDS can be deadly. But Italian scientists found the usefulness of this virus. Scientists find HIV virus to cure two rare genetic diseases suffered by children.
The history of gene therapy is littered with failures. For years has emerged as one of the most promising treatments for a variety of diseases and yet, his consecration fails to appear. Therefore, as the results are published today in Science are a new accolade for all groups of researchers working in this field. Specifically, two studies conducted in the San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy (TIGET), Milan (Italy) confirm the safety and efficacy of gene therapy for both diseases, metachromatic leukodystrophy and Wiskott- Aldrich, caused by alterations in both genes.
Common Human Diseases That Are Caused by Genetic Disorders.
Rare disease that causes partial Sasuphan face covered by the hairs like wolf fur. Recently, researchers have discovered a genetic disorder that causes the disease.
In humans, there is information hidden in the chromosomes (threadlike DNA in the nucleus of the cell that carries the genes in linear order) of how a person will look like, what would be the color of their skin and hair color, height should be, and the disease can bend for (listed as a genetic disorder in humans). As we know, these chromosomes encoded information as sequences of nucleotides.
The value and importance of biotechnology to medicine.
Genetic testing in newborns or means testing laboratory performed in newborns to identify patients at higher risk for certain conditions or genetically inherited disease before symptoms are observed. The information obtained from genetic testing of newborns is very important in early diagnosis of genetic diseases and is useful for providing genetic counseling to parents and families in their risk of developing illness or disease is diagnosed with their newborns.
