12:21 pm
al jazeera says it's swept every. for some trick of nature these stem cells and white swan are on. which this whole
12:22 pm
procedure is a bad joke like cupping but it's more sophisticated insight into what our team is sad by a born american like us relations. it doesn't matter that worldwide three hundred fifty million people are affected by genetic disorders closed by faulty d.n.a. these genetic defects can lead to a variety of conditions like cystic fibrosis which leads to conic i'd also cite along sections at the moment the system and here i am dr elizabeth healy in the u.k. to see how groundbreaking developments in gene therapy could one day transform the lives of people living with genetic disorders. that may l.l.s. but not marry bond on a is sixteen years old and was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of one. american tell me from your perspective what is your day like living with cystic
12:23 pm
fibrosis. arum when i asked so i guess op take my interview rises office. and then harass again my next tears. and asked you i know you guys are failing. and they're nasty much as they are if i do spiral a.j. and they're going to go out and join fleeing for their help in me. and then often ask to do another nebulizer. and there are still more positives. and then yeah i will need space for city of about now so learn. an hour a night. and mary was first diagnosed doctors thought she would only live until the age before. i decided i was dazed and not ready until marriage or. unknown house
12:24 pm
turn around i thought i'd take them on occasion then of ok. there's never a day goes by either and talk to everybody forget the whole thing and i got up so i know it's always there. married to use me to the children to see if i produces no mark on this of ys if i me one of them there were no possible junk mail on one particular one to them so now it was a question isolating condition to hear yet because i was in a special when i was not a c.s. patient they're all right. so i only used to send or letters to each other or. because they couldn't me if they said they saw me fly now last night at the moment mary is not really understanding everything about c.f. she she does now know that it is live show me that she does know that it cannot be kids. but things could be about to change scientists have proven for the
12:25 pm
first time ever that an experimental technique called gene therapy can improve the health of those with cystic fibrosis i've come into central london to meet the doctors and the clinicians involved in the gene therapy trial and desisted fibrosis . resting back and. adding it. to stick fibrosis is as you know a genetically inherited disease parents who pass those copies on to their child and they have cystic fibrosis during the first year of life most babies will experience and lung problems and those relate to the buildup of sticky mucus within the airways and that sticky mucus attracts bacterial infections and the bacteria infections become chronic and they eventually cause quite significant lung scarring in the u.k. they're around ten thousand people with cystic fibrosis at the moment on a registry about one in twenty two of us is
12:26 pm
a carrier of the mutated gene most of us won't realise and about one in two thousand babies are born with cystic fibrosis the genetic nature of this and other conditions mean that treatment has focused on managing the symptoms as best as possible but a new and experimental technique called gene therapy has sort replace the faulty gene with a functioning one this is the largest and the longest duration gene therapy trial using a liquid formulation for cystic fibrosis that has ever happened in the one hundred sixteen patients completed the protocol and took at least nine doses over the course of the year and it was in that group which was defined as being the group we were going to look at that we saw a significant impact on lung function at the end of the year. we can thank the patients and their families in earth because without patients like mary and her mother we just couldn't have completed this trial so we're really grateful. these results would not have been possible without the perseverance of scientists
12:27 pm
who spent years developing the genes and. we started this program and it's thought it would be very easy for patients to just in pair the gene research and if it gets to the right area into the right cells in the lung it turned out that was much more difficult so how are you getting these healthy new genes into the areas and learn to do the job of the some teaching. but the try that is just finished but actually using a very simple minded cure it's a had it lifted but we did this we used a chain and we mixed it with this. this form smaller complex that complex it is then inhale it into the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients the dose of gene therapy that the trial participants received does not terminate correct the faulty cystic fibrosis d.n.a. but scientists are working on finding a longer lasting solution clinical trial results have been very encouraging but they're not quite good enough to turn them into
12:28 pm
a treatment yet so we have plans for another trial where we get more there to some gene complexes and more frequently basically in addition to that we have to developed by arista just very very efficient in getting genes into the lungs do you think you see a virus might be more efficient than using the fatty possibly using them and we certainly think so based on all the evidence we have the virus is at least a hundred fold more effective writing very exciting you know. these success stories represent a huge step forward for people. matt did you notice any change just cheering take the course of the treatment i thought i had no marriage or a i didn't need well though charity more k. . well christian tradition was best so i prayed still coming up let's
12:29 pm
get a little lot done. and how does that make you feel when you submit cheating so mean that i make sure you get to know i could die die could do that and i know i can get the hype is that one day gene therapy will be approved for use and widely available to those with cystic fibrosis and holders people that are studying and working to get this drug to work even better than it did let's just hope and pray they can get it done and they can get the funding and if it doesn't come soon enough mary she's helped other faithful if it's not. the next generation of children born with cystic fibrosis in a city some are. going to do it again. i south korea how corny next week senior. sat reading the sermonize. alymer back again. things can stay there.
12:30 pm
by the age of eighty five nearly half of us will suffer from oxygen damage to the name which can lead to chronic pain and disability bouts because cottage unlike other tissues doesn't have its own blood supply so heals very slowly i'm dr dobson when i'm in hiroshima japan to meet the surgeon pioneering new techniques in regenerating on these. professor myths are all she. is one of the world's leading nice surgeons and a revered figure in the world of regenerative medicine.
12:31 pm
professor to be here. way ok thank you. jay tech is an enterprise focusing on tissue engineering and has spent over ten years commercializing professor archies research. sort of saying yeah. right nice to see you you're very welcome things are back. in one thousand one thousand for my dance on paper was published by swedish group the swedish team had developed a way of regenerating cottage in a lab and then re injecting it in liquid form directly into the knee however there was a weak point all with their need. in order
12:32 pm
to solve this problem started to use the very same scale for the. yes you can imagine that. the foot would be here coming up yes if that. meniscus has no blood supply or if injury is the. wrong we are blind to resect so what you can do with this regenerative medicine is to take the patient's own cotton sheets from the same joint yes all the chain the confidence is essential company i see it does she engineer the cuts. and that's why we're here yeah just half a gram of healthy cartilage is harvested it is then broken down with enzymes and then planted on a college in scaffold designed by professor ought to after just four weeks the cells will have multiplied to form a four square centimeter disc. the surgeon then makes
12:33 pm
a template of the lesion and uses that to harvest some peri all still tissue from the shin bone. this will be the cover used to hold the new cartilage in place so this is a model of someone's potentially regenerated cartilage but the beauty of it being the patient's own cells here is that it's not rejected you know the medicine is on the viewpoint i mean you know roger reaction. is a topic today this method has an almost ninety percent success rate and is considered a leading treatment fanie cartilage defects will what are the limitations of this can it be done better we need the largest in the shia. parties.
