Gene therapy is the transfer of DNA to the patient in order to cure genetic diseases. The new DNA transferred to the patient often contains genes that have the function of correcting the effects of the mutation that causes the disease.

Gene therapy is the use of segments of DNA (usually genes) for the purpose of curing or preventing disease. DNA is carefully selected to correct the effects of the disease-causing altered (mutant) gene. This technique was first developed in 1972, but has so far had very limited success in the treatment of human diseases.

Gene therapy may be a promising treatment option for certain genetic conditions (including muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis).

Stembio, which wants to lead the future of medicine in Turkey with new generation treatments, aims to offer gene therapies to physicians and patients in the coming years.
