  • New FAQs on the Review Process for Human Gene Transfer Trials Posted on OBA Web Site - OBA has developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the process by which OBA and its Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee review human gene transfer protocols. These FAQs were developed in response to the many queries that OBA receives and may be of interest to OBA_NEWS subscribers.
