News: A new start for gene therapy for “bubble boy” disease: First U.S.-treated patient doing well
Until this month, Agustín Cáceres’s baptism was the only time his family could come close to him. Everyone had to wear masks, gloves and gowns.
After that, he went into isolation, along with his mother Marcela, who came out only for meals. His father Alberto, and his four-year-old brother Jeremías, kept to a separate bedroom. Jeremías had to stop attending nursery school, for fear he’d bring home an infection his baby brother might catch. When Agustín’s relatives came to help out, they had to change their clothes and wash their hands, and couldn’t enter Agustín’s room.

Conference: NIH Gene Therapy Symposium
ASGCT members are working with the Trans-NIH Gene Therapy Group to develop a gene therapy symposium on the NIH campus (date September 26-27, 2011).
The goal of the Symposium is to update the NIH community on current scientific issues in gene therapy and to assess areas that may be most ripe for translational initiatives. This Symposium also presents an opportunity to review the challenges faced by investigators moving into the clinic and to discuss examples of technical and regulatory hurdles that have been successfully addressed. The Gene Therapy Symposium will be open to both the NIH community and to the general public. The program is still in the early phases of development. Check the Gene Therapy Net website later for more information.
