Defy Your DNA is a book about a new type of medicine. Oligonucleotides (“gene patches”) are tiny snippets of synthetic DNA. With them we can harness a natural process (of alternative splicing) to fool the cell into making a missing protein. Without that protein, a lethal rare disease may occur. 1 in 10 citizens has a rare disease. Previously most of these “rare diseases” have been untreatable – but these gene patches bring hope at last to patients with these diseases. But that is only one of the ways these gene patches can work. And gene patches are only one of several amazing advances that are coming (first was approved in 2013 in the US) and that herald the Golden Age of Medicine!
