The concept of gene therapy has been floating around the hemophilia community for decades, but with recent success in clinical trials, we appear to be getting closer to having an FDA approved treatment. In this episode, we focus on understanding terminology and types of gene therapy, potential benefits and pitfalls, and the role of factor in a gene therapy world. Our expert for this month’s episode is Dr. Marilyn Manco-Johnson, Director of the University of Colorado Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center, who helps us get a better understanding of what gene therapy is and where the current technology stands. Welcome to Episode 13 - or our Gene Therapy Episode - of the Ask The Expert Podcast!
