In Small Molecule Therapy for Genetic Diseases, Dr. Jess G. Thoene focuses on the most up-to-date and innovative genetic disorder therapies. The treatment of genetic diseases remains a remote and poorly understood concept. However, patients with inborn errors of metabolism-genetic disorders, formed by a mutation in a specific metabolic pathway, can undergo life-saving treatment in the form of small molecule therapy. This book summarizes the progress scientists have made in the treatment of these disorders.
