CRISPR CTX001 Clinical Trial: Promising Results in Sickle Cell Patients
Sickle cell anemia and beta-thalassemia are debilitating genetic blood disorders. Patients in a CRISPR- based clinical trial, CTX001, have shown remarkable progress, as per recent reports, ushering in hope for gene therapy as an effective treatment for these diseases.
Alfred Sommer: Discovering a two-cent remedy that saves children’s lives
“Not a lot of people have an opportunity to make an unexpected discovery that leads to a dramatic program that really impacts the lives of millions and millions of people. But when you do, it is your responsibility to change clinical practice,” says Alfred Sommer, an ophthalmologist at John Hopkins University who lives by this principle.
Sommer earned the Albert Lasker Clinical Medical Research Award in 1997 for converting his discovery that vitamin A reduces mortality rates for common infect...
