Can pathogen virulence genes be engineered to control disease?

Can pathogen virulence genes be engineered to control disease?

Trends in Biotechnology 3(10): 259-250

A brief account of the transmissible hypovirulence disease (TH) of the chestnut blight pathogen, Cryphonectria parasitica, is followed by the suggestion that other filamentous fungi might be biologically controlled by the introduction of a suitable cytoplasmically transmitted element which would similarly reduce virulence. Current lines of research are discussed.
