Cancer new treatment using synthetic biology
At the present time, there are objective limitations for treating certain diseases, such as cancer. Now, Kitada and colleagues study published in NATURE (See HERE) have suggested that part of these limitations can be resolved using synthetic biology.
Particularly synthetic gene networks can regulate the dosage, timing, and localization of gene expression and therapeutic activity in response to small molecules and disease biomarkers. Such “programmable” gene and engineered-cell therapies will provide new interventions for incurable or difficult-to-treat diseases. One further example of what scientific advances might bring to the treatment of serious diseases.
