How stem cell treatment can restore motor function for stroke patients. Video courtesy of Washington Post Stanford researchers studying the effect of stem cells injected directly into the brains of stroke patients said that they were “stunned” by the extent to which the experimental treatment restored motor function in some […]

Stem Cell Treatment Gets Stroke Patients to Walk Again

The Telomeres and Telomerase Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), in collaboration with the Centre’s Transgenic Mice Core Unit, has succeeded in creating mice in the laboratory with hyper-long telomeres and with reduced molecular ageing, avoiding the use of what to date has been the standard method: […]

First gene therapy is successful against human aging. This is comparative to first human stepping on the moon and should be marked with bold letters in our calendars. The lucky person, woman from United States, who has become the first human being to be successfully rejuvenated by gene therapy, after […]

On Wednesday, researchers unveiled in Nature a significant improvement — a new CRISPR system that can switch single letters of the genome cleanly and efficiently, in a way that they say could reliably repair many disease-causing mutations. Scientists describe it as: “extremely important,” “clever,” and “smart.” “It’s a very novel approach and a potentially powerful […]

Huge Step Forward With CRISPR

The new DNA-changing tech has attracted millions. The fact that a single deal was valued at a potential $2.6 billion tells you something about the overall size the CRISPR technology could reach. CRISPR will be used and people will make money, as the new DNA-changing tech has already attracted millions […]

HIV-1 genomes were eliminated from human T-lymphoid cells by CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technique by scientists demonstrating how they can edit HIV out of human immune cell DNA, and in doing so also prevent the reinfection of unedited cells.   Get ready to hear a whole lot more about CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing […]

Scientists Shut Down HIV Permanently with CRISPR

Finally, after decades of work, gene therapy is making it to the clinic, but by now few patients have received any effective gene-therapy treatments. Gene therapy’s future is very encouraging as it is becoming both accessible and affordable. The preparation years have taught us a lot about designing safe and […]

A combination of two therapies, Human Telomerase Reverse Transcriptase and Follistatin, were developed and applied outside the US. in BioViva’s lab to Liz Parrish, the patient and CEO of the company. She seems like a regular person, a mother, who likes to hike and camp, and do all the things […]

BioViva and Liz Parrish have lifted us to a new era, the New Normal of genetic therapy on humans. Liz Parrish, the CEO of BioViva has taken two gene therapies as a test subject simultaneously. Her reasoning to take this leap is that innovation is blocked for medicine if bold […]
