Immune 3

 

Several cases of leukemia have occured among γ-chain-deficient patients who received gene therapy.

Because of this setback, clinical trials of gene therapy for SCID are being carefully evaluated, and more experience is required before the definitive role of gene therapy in SCID is established.
