Abstract

Over the past two decades, developments in human genomics have shown that cancer in the host genome is caused by somatic aberration. This discovery has inspired interest among cancer researchers; many are now using genetic engineering therapeutic methods to improve the cancer regression and seeking a possible cure for the disease. The large gene therapy sector offers a variety of therapies which are likely to become effective in preventing cancer deaths. The latest clinical trials of third generation vaccines for a wide variety of cancers have produced promising results. Cancer virotherapy, which uses viral particles replicating within the cancer cell, is an emerging method of treatment which shows great promise. The latest developments in gene editing techniques, such as CRISPR, Cas9, TALENs, and ZFNs, are being used to help to make cancer a manageable condition. Gene therapy is expected to play a significant role in potential cancer therapy as a part of a multi-modality procedure.
