Each year, millions of people around the world are affected by diseases caused by mutations that occur in the very early stages of development.
But many of those diseases could soon cease to exist, thanks to a gene editing technique that uses the controversial CRISPR-Cas9 system.
Also, altering nuclear DNA in a developing embryo is currently illegal.His leading lady, meanwhile, was the picture of style in an off-the-shoulder black blouse and jeans, an outfit which complimented her svelte physique to full effect.Shannon had a huge smile on her face as she stood beside her guys, her son and husband of six years.The work is a collaboration between the Salk Institute, Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) and Korea's Institute for Basic Science.
Professor Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, an author of the study, said: 'Thanks to advances in stem cell technologies and gene editing, we are finally starting to address disease-causing mutations that impact potentially millions of people.'Gene editing is still in its infancy so even though this preliminary effort was found to be safe and effective, it is crucial that we continue to proceed with the utmost caution, paying the highest attention to ethical considerations.'In the study, the researchers were able to correct a mutation that causes an inherited heart disease, called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).
A change in the law would be needed before such treatments can be considered, and this would involve addressing some profound ethical questions.
