Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Yale University have now proven that gene editing can be used to treat genetic conditions during fetal development. Digitaltrends.com reports that research teams used gene editing in new experiments with mice. They believe that their findings will lead to helping treat millions of children who are born each year with severe genetic disorders or birth defects. David Stitelman, assistant professor of surgery at Yale School of Medicine, said, “This is the first description of a genetic disease corrected by gene editing delivered to a developing mammalian fetus. ... For future translation, we need to determine safety and efficacy in larger animals before applying this technology clinically.”
