Developing Therapeutics That Teach the Body to Heal Itself
Part of the Video Series: Cell and Gene Therapy Explained
In this video, Jeff Galvin explains how American Gene Technologies (AGT) uses genetic modifications in the body to change how viral diseases interact with the immune system.
Using gene and cell therapy, AGT is developing treatments for infectious diseases, cancers, and rare diseases. AGT has employed a unique strategy in which cells can be modified to improve the function of the body to fight diseases or disorders previously untreatable or thought of as chronic conditions. Galvin also explains the work being done in cell therapy. He shares how cell therapy can be used to implement tiny modifications into cells in order to improve the cell’s function against disease, similar to how a software update is given to computers.
