Real-time MRI may improve delivery of gene therapy to brain

The use of real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during direct-to-brain delivery of gene therapy may help optimize the safety and effectiveness of such therapeutics for neurological diseases such as aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) deficiency. In a recent review study published in JAMA Surgery, researchers at the Ohio…
