Caption: Foetus in capsule. Conceptual computer artwork of a drug capsule containing a foetus and a DNA autoradiograph 'genetic fingerprint' (columns of blue bands). The capsule may depict a gene therapy 'pill'. Gene therapy is the treatment of medical conditions caused by malfunctioning genes. Treatment often involves administering a corrected version of the defective gene to the patient so that they can use it to function normally. The foetus in the pill may represent the prenatal diagnosis of a genetic defect, such as cystic fibrosis, and gene therapy being applied to the foetus to remedy its condition before it is born.
