First U.S. Patients Treated With CRISPR As Human Gene-Editing Trials Get Underway. What could go wrong?
Is this what starts the zombie apocalypse?

===

The powerful gene-editing technique called CRISPR has been in the news a lot. And not all the news has been good: A Chinese scientist stunned the world last year when he announced he had used CRISPR to create genetically modified babies.

But scientists have long hoped CRISPR — a technology that allows scientists to make very precise modifications to DNA — could eventually help cure many diseases. And now scientists are taking tangible first steps to make that dream a reality.

For example, NPR has learned that a U.S. CRISPR study that had been approved for cancer at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia has finally started. A university spokesman on Monday confirmed for the first time that two patients had been treated using CRISPR.

One patient had multiple myeloma, and one had sarcoma. Both had relapsed after undergoing standard treatment.

The revelation comes as several other human trials of CRISPR are starting or are set to start in the U.S., Canada and Europe to test CRISPR's efficacy in treating various diseases.

"2019 is the year when the training wheels come off and the world gets to see what CRISPR can really do for the world in the most positive sense," says Fyodor Urnov, a gene-editing scientist at the Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences in Seattle and the University of California, Berkeley.

Here are highlights of the year ahead in CRISPR research, and answers to common questions about the technology.

Whatever happened to the two CRISPR kids from China?

Cutting and pasting our genes just sounds like a terrible idea.

I'm pretty sure this is what the Nephilim were doing back in the day.

I'd try it if it was available but only because there isn't much else out there treatment wise.

Whoever succeeds at this first rules the world. Hopefully science and law wakes up very soon or this will bring in Armegeddon.

I took a crash course on this last night. My kid is working on a model of Cas9 for class due tomorrow. 1 peraon already died from this in an experiment. An 18 uear old i think. They are really trying to shove this down peoples throats.

Crisper edits only one cell at a time...

So the results won’t be what everyone is thinking it will be until they can find a way to deliver it to all desired cells at once...

This verse has now officially come to pass...

Mark 13:28
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near"

The Hybrids are beginning to bud.

We now have less than one generation before the end...

Mark 13:30
"Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done"


Good luck everyone.

Oh yeah, what could go wrong? Anything! Off target mutations and those mutations translating to future offspring. How about a growing prolapsed rectum that drops down like an elephant trunk and sweeps for peanuts. Great ice breaker in social gatherings.

Mark in the Right Hand = Palm/Finger Prints
Mark in the Forehead = Facial Recognition


Isaiah 49:16
"Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me"

CRISPR will give a NEW Mark to those in the trials.

Their Books will be re-written.

They will receive new Prints and Irises.

God will no longer recognize them...

Matthew 7:23
"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity"

Unpardonable Sin.
