Gene therapy hope for allergies and asthma – BioNews

Life-threatening allergies and asthma could one day be treated by a single injection, say researchers who have successfully treated mice using gene therapy. Dr Ray Steptoeofthe University of Queensland in Australia and colleagues ‘turned off’ the immune system’s memory of an allergen in mice, suggesting that it could be possible for a single treatment to permanently stop the cause of allergic reactions, rather than just managing the symptoms. The immune system’s memory is the underlying cause of both asthma and allergies, as immune cells incorrectly recognise and ‘remember’ allergens as being potentially dangerous, andmount an immune response.
