Gene therapy is an experimental technique performed by replacing a mutated gene with a healthy copy of the gene as an alternative to surgery or medications. It is designed to make a beneficial protein or introduce new genes to mutated cells to compensate for a patient's abnormal genes, explains Gene
Though still experimental, gene therapy fixes genetic defects and potentially reduces the need for drugs, radiation or surgical intervention. Replacing bad genes with good ones may eventually cure Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cancer and many other diseases.
According to Genetics Home Reference, gene therapy requires the use of healthy genes to treat illnesses. Instead of a person undergoing surgery, genes are introduced to a patient's body to replace corrupted DNA. Another method is to inactivate negative genes instead of replacing them.
