The future treatment of heart attacks could see doctors deploying gene therapy treatments that deactivate key genes, thanks to research underway at the University of Sheffield. Researchers at the university, which has been awarded £800,000 from the British Heart Foundation to conduct the project, are working on developing a drug to deactivate the gene that … Continue reading Scientists target gene therapy to ‘switch off’ heart attack-causing genes
