Researchers at the OSU Wexner Medical Center have developed a micro chip, which can transfer genetic code into cells, without any surgery. How does it work? Take a look!
The results of the first trial are "a triumph" for Huntington's patients and their families since existing medications only help to manage the symptoms of the disease, one of the researchers told DW.
Butterfly children have a gene defect that makes their skin as fragile as the wings of insects. Now, doctors have managed to save the life of a boy by transplanting his own genetically repaired skin cells.
US regulators have approved a breakthrough treatment that genetically engineers patients' own blood cells to fight childhood leukemia. Experts say it may open the way to treating other cancers with a similar procedure.
Researchers in the US have used an experimental gene-editing technique to correct a mutation in dozens of embryos. Some hailed the development as illuminating and surprising; others say it crossed a moral line.
