Antisense therapy – Wikipedia

Antisense therapy is a form of treatment for genetic disorders or infections. When the genetic sequence of a particular gene is known to be causative of a particular disease, it is possible to synthesize a strand of nucleic acid (DNA, RNA or a chemical analogue) that will bind to the messenger RNA (mRNA) produced by that gene and inactivate it, effectively turning that gene “off” Continue reading

CRISPR therapy preserves hearing in genetic deafness model

Hearing loss is the most common form of sensory loss in humans, and almost half of cases have an underlying genetic cause. Reporting today in Nature, a team led by researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard University, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) hasdeveloped a CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing therapy to prevent hearing loss in a mouse model of human genetic progressive deafness. Continue reading
