On the potential for the study's results to translate to humans"I'm quite optimistic with this one, because our blood vessels work the same way as in mice. This isn't a complicated disease like Alzheimer's. And so I think that actually I'd be surprised if there isn't some benefit in people. Of course the challenge is to make a drug, and we have to make sure it's super safe, but we're already doing human studies over the road from my lab at Harvard. And so far it looks really good."
When are we gonna start using CRISPR to fix genetic diseases like... oh, I don't know.... Tuberous Sclerosis?I heard on NPR today that there are only 10 human studies currently underway, and 9 of them are in China.
96 vaccine derived cases?
I know about attenuated vaccines, that just seems to be rather a lot of cases (over 4x the wild version). Surely they should not be as severe?
