Lab study: Protein delivered via genetically engineered virus slowed glioblasoma multiforme growth

... years. Just like a viral infection, they work by tricking cells into accepting them as part of their own genetic coding. To make them safe, scientists remove the genetic viral genes that cause infection and engineer them so that they stop reproducing and also carry therapeutic genes. In this study,...

Lab studies show two proteins prevented progressive nerve cell loss in Parkinson's disease

... years. Just like a viral infection, they work by tricking cells into accepting them as part of their own genetic coding. The trick has been to alter the virus so that it delivers the desired genetic material, while removing any characteristics that make the virus dangerous. To make viruses safe and effec...
