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

FDA approves gene therapy for blindness – CNN

Voretigene neparvovec, which will be sold as Luxturna, is made by Philadelphia-based Spark Therapeutics Inc. The one-time treatment is approved for children and adults with retinal dystrophy due to a mutation of the RPE65 gene, which causes severe visual impairment beginning in infancy. As it progresses, patients experience gradual loss of peripheral and central vision, which can eventually lead to blindness. Continue reading
