Over the past decades, gene therapy has seen a massive transformation from a proof-of-concept approach to a clinical reality culminating in the regulatory approval of state-of-the-art products in the European Union and in the United States. This book captures some of the scientific progresses notably in gene transfer technologies and translational development of in vivo and ex vivo gene therapy interventions in the treatment of a broad range of complex and debilitating non-inherited and inherited disorders such as: human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) infection, cancer, cystic fibrosis, hereditary retinopathies, haemophilia B, cardiac diseases, and chronic liver fibrosis.
