Gene Doctors, The
Gene Doctors, The 1 x 60'
Billions of DNA letters. One mistake. We know more than ever about genes, and yet minute errors in our coding can still cause permanent serious damage. But now, a medical revolution is starting to offer effective treatments. A girl who is blind regains her sight. A boy continues to walk years after his untreated brother with the same disease cannot. This film follows an elite group of medical pioneers devising treatments​ that for the first time target the root causes of genetic illnesses. Zeroing in on single-gene defects such as Huntington's disease, muscular dystrophy and blindness, can this progress then lead the way to the treatment of cancer and autism? This is a story of our times - it may be that the medical advances we make in the next twenty years outweigh those of the two millennia before.
