Chinese Scientists To Perform First Ever CRISPR Gene-Editing Trial On Humans
[link to www.techtimes.com]


A team of Chinese scientists will soon pioneer the use of a breakthrough gene-editing technique to inject modified cells on humans during clinical trials.

The team, which received ethical approval on July 6 from the review board of the West China Hospital in Chengdu, will begin testing genetically altered cells on lung cancer patients in August.

Led by oncologist Lu You from the Sichuan University, scientists will modify the cells using CRISPR-Cas9, a form of "genetic engineering scissors" that allows experts to edit DNA with precision.
