Long Term Therapies
Long term therapies fall into two areas; Gene Therapy and Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT). Gene therapy is a relatively new technology whereas BMT has been used extensively for many years to 'cure' CGD. Both have their advantages and disadvantages and we present as much information as we can.
Prof. Adrian Thrasher of the UCL Institute of Child Health, England, talks about the progress that has been made with gene therapy over recent years and we have updates from the most recent family conferences.

BMT - Things to Consider
