Scientists are seeing promising early results from the first studies testing gene editing for painful, inherited blood disorders that plague millions worldwide, especially Black people.
Doctors hope the one-time treatment, which involves permanently altering DNA in blood cells with a tool called CRISPR, may treat and possibly cure sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia.
Partial results were presented Saturday at an American Society of Hematology conference and some were published by the New England Journal of Medicine.
