CRISPR technology: Curing diseases through gene editing.
CRISPR technology offers the promise to cure any human genetic diseases. It is one of the big medical breakthroughs. CRISPR helps to treat many diseases including retinal degenerative disease and other inherited diseases such as cystic fibrosis and haemophilia. In 2017 FDA approved gene therapy for inherited retinal diseases. Some of the diseases like cancer, blood disorders (hemophilia), AIDS, genetic blindness, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, Huntington’s are few diseases CRISPR technology can help to cure.
