Gene therapy has moved one step closer to clinical reality as scientists from the Morganridge Institute for Research at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, have determined that the process of correcting a genetic defect does not substantially increase the number of potentially cancer-causing mutations in induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs), suggesting they may be cultured into subsequent generations of cells that remain free of the initial disease.
