Gene therapy (also called human gene transfer) is a medical field which focuses on the utilization of the therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid into a patient's cells as a drug to treat disease. The first attempt at modifying human DNA was performed in by Martin Cline, but the first successful nuclear gene transfer in humans, approved by the National Institutes of Health, was performed in.

ease. Gene therapy introduces a normal, functional copy of a gene into a cell in which that gene is defective. Cells, tissue, or even whole individuals (when germ-line cell therapy becomes available) modi-fied by gene therapy are considered to be transgenic or genetically modified.
