Welcome to Clinical Genetics

Ionis gene therapy trial

We are aware of the very exciting news regarding the Ionis gene therapy trial that was reported on BBC News on 11 December 2017.

We are in contact with the Principal Investigator about future studies. However, there are no immediate plans regarding further clinical trials, and we all need to wait until all the information is available.

If you are interested in participating in research, and are not already known to our department, then you can be referred to Professor Andrea Nemeth, Oxford Centre for Genomic Medicine.

If you are already under review by our department then you will be able to discuss research studies during your next appointment.
