Gene Therapy

Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) is an attractive target for gene therapy since it results from a single gene defect and complete protection does not require full correction of superoxide production, as shown by many healthy X-linked carriers. Gene therapy protocols using lentivectors will start soon in the U.S. and Europe.

A list of current clinical trial is available at Clinical Trials.gov.
