Gene therapy shows promise as potential cure for sickle cell disease

Note - it appears to involve insertion of a new gene at random points in the genome. Previous work has shown that this causes s significant risk of any of several types of cancer appearing about 10 years later, due to occasionally inserting the new gene into the middle of a gene that prevents cancer.

Great stuff. I am glad we can contribute to a project that can help in some manner to find the answers.
