Genome Editing Cures Muscular Dystrophy in Mice

Researchers from Duke University have used the CRISPR technology to cure Duchenne muscular dystrophy in a mouse. It is the first time that the gene editing technology is successfully used to treat an adult mammalian. The study, published in the journal Science, establishes CRISPR/Cas9 as a potential therapy for the treatment of muscular dystrophy in humans. Duchenne […]
