    I guess I understand the mechanics of why this method of introducing "gene therapy".

    Sadly I don't understand gene therapy well enough to fully appreciate what this technique can be used for.

    It's not only applicable to gene therapy. It could be any therapy that requires the application of any medicine to a specific region of the body
