Dear Anonymous
Gene therapy is very specialized and mostly very experimental in this stage. Here is a website with interesting information. It is mostly used to develop carriers of enzymes or to target specific groups of cells.
See http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/medicine/genetherapy.shtml
It is developed in such a way that it only targets the organ or cells they want to treat
