March 11, 2016


Discover how Minnesota Children's Hospitals, in collaboration with Ghost Medical Animation, is revolutionizing healthcare with gene therapy for pediatric liver disorders.

Explore the collaborative efforts between Ghost Medical Animation and Minnesota Children's Hospitals in advancing healthcare through innovative medical animations. This latest animation draft showcases the conceptualization of utilizing a lenti virus as a vehicle for addressing genetic abnormalities within hepatocyte cells, potentially offering life-saving solutions for pediatric liver disorders.

Children's Minnesota, renowned for its pediatric care, acknowledges the pivotal role of DNA in organ functionality. Through this animation, we delve into the intricacies of liver metabolism, highlighting the significance of precise genetic instructions.

Join us in understanding the importance of gene therapy in managing inborn errors of liver metabolism, such as tyrosinemia. Through gene therapy, there's a possibility of introducing correct genetic sequences into infant liver cells, potentially averting severe conditions like cirrhosis.

Meet the dedicated team at Children's Minnesota, including fetal interventionalists, leading the charge in this groundbreaking field. Gene therapy presents a beacon of hope for a future where genetic disorders, including those affecting the liver, can be addressed proactively, even before birth.
