...methods could reduce costs and the amount of preparation that goes into modifying blood stem cells using viral vector gene therapy," said Wang. "It would make gene therapy accessible to a lot more patients."
"The issue is hitting an industry that is already suffering from a short supply of breeder birds. The U S Agriculture Department last month reduced its U S chicken production forecast for 2014, predicting only a 1 percent increase in poundage from 2013, well below the long-run annual average of 4 percent" just as chicken exports are driving up prices and beef and pork prices are also high...
