What is Gene Therapy?

An explanation of why it’s so hard:

Several early efforts at gene therapy have focused on diseases of the blood, inherited anaemia, immune deficiencies, and blood clotting disorders. In these cases, the theory is relatively simple. But, in practice, gene therapy has proved much harder than we might have expected.

Lots of promising technologies never make it into production for one reason or another.  I’m still not ready to write this off, though.
