Gene therapy is a form of therapy that inserts a gene into an individual’s cells and tissues to treat genetic diseases or replace abnormal genes with correct genes to treat other diseases. Gene therapy inserts a working gene into a person who has a damaged gene. Gene therapy works by repressing, replacing, or repairing defective genes that cause disease and with a purpose of regenerating normal function. Further, when a cell does not work properly or is absent, a genetically planned gene is introduced into the cell. For proper functioning of the cell, the gene needs to be inserted correctly into the targeted cell to avoid causing any adverse effects.
Gene therapy is considered as a significant means of treatment as it eradicates the practice of surgery, drugs, or other procedures that can have side effects on the health of individuals. A genetic disorder is a consequence of gene modifications in which proteins are produced inaccurately. Modified gene is a reason for the absence of the important protein. Further, with the help of gene therapy normal replica of that absent or faulty protein can be presented to restore the function of the protein. Gene therapy is used for the treatment of various diseases such as cancer, hemophilia, parkinson’s disease, HIV, and can immune shortages through various approaches.
Innovation in gene therapy for rare & cardiovascular diseases treatment is growing and increasing awareness regarding the ability of gene therapy to cure diseases drives the growth of gene therapy market. Further, several benefits such as the ability to replace defective cells help in eliminating diseases and significant therapeutic potential offered by gene therapy is boosting the growth of this market. Rising occurrence of cancer and increasing government support for gene therapy in cancer treatment can further fuel the demand for gene therapy market. Gene therapy has substantial potential to eradicate and counter several genetic illnesses and frequent life-threatening disorders, such as AIDS, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, heart diseases, age-related disorders, and cystic fibrosis.
As per WHO, there were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 and 1.8 million people were newly infected in 2017 worldwide. In addition to this, in 2018 American Cancer Society reported 609,640 people were dead owing to cancer in the United States. Moreover, the upsurge in a number of gene therapy treatment centers in developed countries and increasing adoption for gene therapy for Oncological disorder have expected to be a lucrative growth opportunity for this market. On the contrary, the high cost associated with gene therapies and the potential to give rise to other disorders is likely to restrain the growth of the gene therapy market.
