Researchers At Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Demonstrate A New Way To Switch Therapeutic Genes On And Off

Novel Signaling System May Eventually Help Make Gene Therapies More Effective

Los Angeles - December 22, 2005 - A gene therapy research team at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has developed a new method of signaling therapeutic genes to turn “off” or “on,” a mechanism that could enable scientists to fine-tune genetic- and stem cell-based therapies so that they are safer, more controllable and more effective.

Although other similar signaling systems have been developed, the Cedars-Sinai research is the first to give physicians the flexibility to arbitrarily turn the gene expression on or off even in the presence of an immune response to adenovirus, as would be present in...
