The sentence here says, "Antisense therapy is not strictly a form of gene therapy, but is a related, genetically mediated therapy." Isn't antisense therapy really a type of gene therapy? --سمرقندی (Samarqandi) (talk) 01:16, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
not really - antisense doesn't seek to alter the genome, but instead acts more like a typical small molecule drug, to interfere with the function of a biomolecule downstream of the genome. I edited the article to address this confusion. Jytdog (talk) 18:10, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for reply. I do not know any peer review journal to mention it about antisense therapy, there are many journal articles and books that mention the term - Antisense gene therapy - I am not insisting but maybe we need more editing there or some reference. --سمرقندی (Samarqandi) (talk) 06:26, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
