There’s a fine red line between cures, enhancements using gene editing tech – BioWorld Online

By Nuala Moran Staff Writer BOSTON The triumph of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Broad Institute and its spinout company Editas Medicine Inc. in the case of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing patents could impede the development of human therapies based on the technology, according to one of the leading researchers in the field. George Church, professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, said, “It definitely is an issue” if Editas maintains exclusivity in applying patents on using CRISPR/Cas9 to edit eukaryote genes. Continue reading

Gene editing could bring an end to all inherited disease and cancer, expert says – The Independent

All inherited diseases and cancers could be cured in the coming decades, according to a leading British expert. Gene editing techniques that have been developed in recent years could be put to work to effectively end cancer and inherited diseases, according to DrEdze Westra MrWestra believes that the ability to splice DNA into cells precisely a technology which is on the horizon, but is rejected on moral grounds by many will become super importantover the next 20 years. It could completely transform the human race, he says so thatpeople are not affected by cancer, failing vision or the diseases of old age Continue reading

Gene therapy tried in dogs with muscle disease could prove useful for people – FierceBiotech

Theres a rare disorder that occurs when a gene mutation halts the production of myotubularina protein that facilitates normal muscle function. The disease, called myotubular myopathy (MTM), only affects males, and its ultimately fatal because it causes breathing difficulties. Dogs get MTM, tooand that spelled opportunity for scientists at the University of Washington Medicine Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Continue reading

Rare Muscle Disease Treated Successfully with Gene Therapy – Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News

Work on gene therapy is showing significant progress for restoring muscle strength and prolonging lives in dogs with a previously incurable, inherited neuromuscular disease, according to scientists at the University of Washington (UW) Medicine Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. The disease arises from a mutation in genes that normally make myotubularin, a protein essential for proper muscle function. Puppies with this naturally occurring mutation exhibit several features of babies with the same defective gene Continue reading
