Abstract / Description of output
In medical science, few areas hold as much promise and excitement as gene therapy. It is a cutting-edge field that aims to harness the body's own genetic machinery to combat diseases at their root cause. While gene therapy has shown potential across various diseases (notably in rare monogenetic disease areas), here we dive into the latest advancements specifically focused on the heart. With cardiovascular diseases remaining a leading cause of global morbidity and mortality, researchers are tirelessly exploring innovative ways to tackle rare and common heart-related ailments. In this article, we discuss the fascinating world of gene therapy, exploring recent breakthroughs as well as remaining challenges and their implications for cardiovascular health.
