Researchers at Lausanne University have developed a new gene delivery system which they say offers increased specificity, efficiency and safety in gene therapy.

The invention relates to new DNA molecules that have insulator or boundary properties, and their use for the construction of vectors that enable controlled genetic expression.

Another aspect of the invention concerns the treatment of patients diagnosed with a genetic disease by administering such new vectors.
