Genetic Therapies What Happens During Genetic Therapy?
Genetic therapies are still in the early stages of research, development, and clinical trials, but researchers already know a lot about how they may work as a treatment. For example, if you participate in a clinical trial or receive genetic therapy in the future, treatment may be provided in one of two ways. Your cells may be directly modified inside your body, or your cells may be collected and modified outside your body and then returned to you. The method may depend on your condition and what organ or types of cells in your body need to be treated.
