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 […]

History is Made – First Human Gets Biologically Younger 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

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 […]

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 […]
