ABC International

Summary
Inheriting genes from your parents is a bit of a genetic lottery. In fact, there are thousands of known diseases that can be passed on through just one faulty gene. This video segment investigates the complex world of gene therapy. Diseases like, hemophilia, muscular dystrophy, and cystic fibrosis could be prevented by repairing or replacing the defective gene that causes these conditions in the first place.
