key information

year: 2019

authors: Conboy I, Murthy N, Etienne J, Robinson Z

summary/abstract:

This review discusses current bottlenecks in making CRISPR-Cas9-mediated genome editing a therapeutic reality and it outlines recent strategies that aim to overcome these hurdles as well as the scope of current clinical trials that pioneer the medical translation of CRISPR-Cas9.

Additionally, this review outlines the specifics of disease-modifying gene editing in recessive versus dominant genetic diseases with the focus on genetic myopathies that are exemplified by Duchenne muscular dystrophy and myotonic dystrophies.
