Somatic gene therapy in the fetus or neonate represents an exciting new approach for the management of some congenital or inherited diseases. It is likely that clinical trials of these methods will take place in the future. In contrast, despite the potential for manipulation of embryos and inherited genetic material, the clinical applicability of these methods is uncertain.
