    • gene therapy - any recent studies?

      I came a cross a comment from one doctor to keep up hoes that gene therapy is coming. But I can't find any evidence for that. last study that I cam across regarding gene therapy for PKU was 2010 test on mice (that was successful, yet it's a loooong way from mouse to a human). So I was wondering if you guys know anything about any more recent studies in this area?

      Carpe Diem!
    • This is only a theoretical approach, yet. There is nothing coming in the near future. Even that mouse study had be retracted, see here . A few months ago I spoke to a geneticist and he completely rid me of the notion that this might be a feasible approach in the near future, sorry.
