Those who are interested in the gene repair therapy that Dr. Blaese spoke to us about at Symposium '98 will find an article worth reading in the May 1999 issue of Fortune Magazine. "Can Gene Therapy Cure This Child?" reviews the Kimeragen company's struggle to break into the field of gene therapy. The article chronicles the problems involved in bringing the therapy to human trials. The Floyd Martin children with Crigler-Najjar disease, who are scheduled to be the first to receive the new gene therapy, are featured in the article. It is a lengthy and interesting article although MSUD is not mentioned.
