Embryonic Stem Cells Help Deliver ‘Good Genes’ in a Model of Inherited Blood Disorder

ScienceDaily - Feb. 13, 2011 — Researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital report a gene therapy strategy that improves the condition of a mouse model of an inherited blood disorder, beta-thalassemia. The gene correction involves using unfertilized eggs from afflicted mice to produce a batch of embryonic stem cell lines. Some of these stem cell lines do
