So I’m certainly no doctor/scientist, but this new CRISPR tool sounds pretty promising. Towards the end of the article, they talk about how the new CasRx was able to penetrate the neurons in their in vitro experiments with an 80% success rate for treating FTD. Neat stuff!
Hi. It seems like posts on this forum about Crispr/Cas9 in its potential to cure HSV 1 is limited. I have not found any recent posts on this subject. Also, I can't find updated articles from google on this subject either. What is the current status with this?
I read about a hopeful research group lead by Dr. Bloom at the University of Florida conducting Crispr/Cas9 research to cure HSV 1 and possibly HSV 2, although I'm not sure if their information is updated. Here's the link to the professor's lab info:
So, what is the current progress with Crispr/Cas9 research to cure HSV 1 and/or HSV 2.
Us government is handing out 190 million over the next 6 year's to help move gene editing along!
they use gene editing at 11 medical centers, they didnt give a lot information on their trials but i will follow their trial that will be on hpv. They will use crispr as topical cream it will be interesting. In 2 years we will see how effective is crispr on humans and plus everyday they are finding some tools to improve crispr’s efficiency.
