Summary of "Recent highlights and advances in cardiac gene therapy."

There has been significant progress in the field of gene therapy toward clinical application in recent years. Cardiac gene therapy has followed this trend, but at a slower pace compared to therapies targeting retinal, spinal, and blood disorders. New approaches targeting monogenic disorders are being developed at a rapid pace and studies in large animal models show promise. Meanwhile, several clinical trials are underway to prove the efficacy of gene therapy for cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure. In this concise review, we attempt to summarize recent highlights in technological advancements, preclinical studies, and clinical trials of cardiac gene therapy.
