In the bedroom, a round mirror needed mounting beside the door.

How Crispr Could Snip Away Some of Humanity’s Worst Diseases

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

HIV has no cure. But it’s not quite the implacable scourge it was throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Education, prophylactics, and drugs like PrEP have cut down its transmission. Anti-retroviral treatments keep HIV-positive people’s immune systems from collapsing.But still, no cure. Part of the problem is HIV’s ability to squirrel itself away inside a cell’s DNA—including the DNA of the immune cells that are supposed to be killing it. The same ability, though, could be HIV’s undoing. All because of Crispr. You know, Crispr: The gene-editing technique that got everyone really excited, then really skeptical, and now cautiously optimistic about curing a bunch of intractable diseases.
