Gene Therapy and Genetic Counseling

Gene therapy is an experimental technique that uses genes or simply nucleic acid polymers to treat or prevent disease into a patient's cell as a drug for disease treatment.  In the future, this technique may allow doctors to treat a disorder by inserting a gene into a patient's cells instead of using drugs or surgery.Gene therapy is a way to fix a genetic problem at its core or source. The polymers are either translated into proteins which interfere with the target gene expression or else they could possibly correct genetic mutations.

The most common form of gene delivery is in the form of DNA that encodes the functional therapeutic gene to replace the target mutated gene. the polymer molecules are packaged inside a vector which  carries the molecules inside and helps in their integration. Gene therapy is a very effective but debatable form of treatment of genetic disorders depending upon their extent of viability and social and ethical acceptance.

Genetic counseling is the process by whixch an individual or individuals at risk of any inherited disorders are advised and made aware of the consequences and nature of the disorder , as well as te probability of developing or transmitting it.
