Gene Therapy Strategies to Correct or Eliminate Cancer Cells

“A number of gene therapy strategies are being evaluated in patients with cancer and these include manipulating cells to gain or lose function. For example, half of all cancers have a mutated p53 protein that interferes with the ability of tumor cells to self-destruct by a process called apoptosis.”

Cell Therapy Research
“In the past few decades, major progress in cell and molecular biology has enabled significant advances in science and medicine. Cell therapies are no longer generated simply by acquiring and processing cells or tissues.”

Immunotherapy: Using the Immune System to Treat Cancer

“In the past few years, the rapidly advancing field of cancer immunology has produced several new methods of treating cancer, called immunotherapies, that increase the strength of immune responses against tumors. Immunotherapies either stimulate the activities of specific components of the immune system or counteract signals produced by cancer cells that suppress immune responses.”
