ABSTRACT Cancer is an unusual development of cells the proximate reason for which is unevenness in cell expansion and demise getting through the ordinary physiological governing rules framework and a definitive reason for which are one or even more an assortment of quality adjustments. These modifications can be basic, e.g. transformations, insertions, erasures, intensifications, combinations and translocations, or utilitarian (heritable changes without changes in nucleotide succession).

A Systematic Review of Gene Therapy as Treatment of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Gene therapy has potential as a recent treatment in cases of oral squamous cell carcinoma, and is introducing new genetic material into target cells while causing no damage to surrounding healthy cells and tissue.


Autologous Gene Therapy - A Proactive Approach to Cancer Critique
Gene therapy is quite promising since the body’s immune response is not compromised while targeting the cancerous cell and various characteristic features like less toxicity and ability to induce an immune response make the therapy quite probable for various cancers like pancreatic, ovarian and Glioblastoma.

Dihydropyrimidine Dehydrogenase Is a Prognostic Marker for Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Mediated Cytosine Deaminase Gene and 5-Fluorocytosine Prodrug Therapy for the Treatment of Recurrent Gliomas
The results suggested that DPD can be used as a biomarker for selecting glioma patients who may possibly benefit from this therapy, and targeting DNA damage and its repair is a selectable option for gliomas after the standard chemo/radio-therapy.
Potential Hsp90 Inhibitors: A Novel Target for Cancer Therapy
Hsp90 (heat shock protein 90) is a chaperone protein that assists other proteins to fold properly, stabilizes proteins against heat stress, and aids in protein degradation, which is why Hsp90 inhibitors are investigated as anti-cancer drugs.
Suicide Gene Therapy against Cancer
The concept of gene therapy for cancer is summarized and the most frequently used suicide gene therapy systems are introduced, including viral, molecular and cellular vectors and their advantages and disadvantages.
Genetic alteration and mutation profiling of circulating cell-free tumor DNA (cfDNA) for diagnosis and targeted therapy of gastrointestinal stromal tumors
New methodologies, such as a technology that employs a xenonucleic acid (XNA) clamping probe to block the PCR amplification of wild-type templates, have allowed improved molecular detection of these low-frequency alleles both in tissue biopsy samples and in cfDNA, which could be widely applied for minimally invasive molecular testing in the therapeutic management of GISTs.
Identification of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Engraftment Genes in Gene Therapy Studies
The aim of this review is to describe the potential for vector insertion site data from gene therapy studies to provide novel insights into mechanisms of HSC engraftment.
Genetic Counselling, Pharmacogenetics and Gene Therapy: The Paving-Stones Leading to Brighter Futures
Genetic counselling goes hand-in-hand with two other branches of genetics to allow the counsellor to identify certain genetic abnormalities and also provide hope to the patient that there is the possibility of having a normal child.
