Mouse Model Shows Gene Therapy Vectors Carrying Telomerase Gene Do Not Increase Cancer Risk

The nuclei are in blue, alveolar type II cells in green and telomeres in red. Notice that lung cells treated with active telomerase present more intense telomeres indicating that they are longer as compared to lung cells treated with the null vectors or with an inactive telomerase.
