Hi Girish,
Gene therapy for Beta Thal is still in works with many trails underway. There still no definitive timelines for availability of Gene Therapy as a curative approach for larger populations. Bluebird Bio is planning to conduct some trails in Thailand as well, may be you can look at it (if you are fitting the eligibility criteria).

Kindly follow the threads in Working Towards a Cure for latest updates:

  • Gene Transfer Therapy Stage 1 Clinical Trials at Sloan Kettering
  • Bluebird Bio Releases Data on Current Gene Therapy Trials
  • Bluebird Bio Reports Gene Therapy Success
  • Recruiting patient for Thalgen Finally! Good News about Gene Therapy Trials
  • Bluebird Bio

Also you can find a consolidated update on CAF here: http://www.thalassemia.org/powerpoint-gene-therapy-and-other-curative-approaches/

Hi,

Thanks for the updates, i would surely go through the weblinks which you have provided me below.

I would like to ask how far do you think this would be successful and when?

Regards,

Girish

No donor is required in gene therapy. It is a sort of autologus transplant.
