Scientists Warn CRISPR Therapy Could Cause Cancer as First Human Trials Take Place

A study at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has revealed that CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing could favor mutations in the most common cancer-causing gene. What does it mean for the first CRISPR therapy trials in humans? CRISPR-Cas9 has taken the life sciences field by storm, making gene editing simpler and faster than ever. Although CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing … Continue reading Scientists Warn CRISPR Therapy Could Cause Cancer as First Human Trials Take Place
