  Gene Therapy Gene therapy involves the therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid and subsequent translation of that genetic material into a key protein that is critical in a disease process. Gene therapy . Apr. 17, — Researchers are developing new 'gene promoters' - which act like switches to turn genes on - for use with gene therapy, the delivery of new genes to replace ones that are faulty.
