Medicine and Commerce for the 21st Century
Mary J. Ortner, Ph.D., M.B.A.
Published: January, 2001 

400+ Pages, 70+ Exhibits, 30+ Companies Profiled
Gene therapy is being actively researched in almost every serious disease.

The 21stCentury is upon us and the sequencing of the human genome has brought incredible challenges concerning how this information will be used. The number of discrete genes in the human being has been estimated to be between 100,000 and 140,000, most of which have already been isolated. Although the vast majority have not been functionally identified, numerous genes have been directly implicated in disease function or inherited disorders. For decades, scientists have dreamed of curing such catastrophic conditions in the most simple and elegant manner - by replacing these malfunctioning genes. That dream is now becoming a reality.

Gene Therapy: Medicine and Commerce for the 21st Century is the sequel to the well-acclaimed second edition of D&MD's Human Gene Therapy Report. Focusing on the most recent developments in this entirely new world facing the pharmaceutical, medical and investment communities, this report is aimed at the business and science professional alike. D&MD's Gene Therapy Report will help the reader understand the science of gene therapy along with a realistic view of the field and its future. It will also show how independent companies and those affiliated with Big Pharma are pursuing paths to the prize that will, once and for all, demonstrate the ellusive proof of principal.
