WEDNESDAY, March 4, 2020 (HealthDay News) — The gene editing tool CRISPR has been used inside a person’s body for the first time, scientists report.
The DNA surgery was conducted at the Casey Eye Institute at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, according to the companies that make the treatment. They didn’t provide details about the patient or say when the surgery occurred.
It could take up to a month to determine if the patient’s vision is restored. If initial attempts appear safe, doctors plan to test the procedure on 18 children and adults, the AP reported.
