A 1-year-old girl is in remission after receiving an experimental therapy that used genetically engineered T-cells from a donor to kill her cancer.
Edit: to some people in the comments: I am thoroughly in favour of long testing times for dangerous therapies, but this has nothing to do with the bioconservative
A one-year-old girl is in remission after receiving an experimental therapy that used genetically engineered T-cells from a donor to kill her cancer.
In this the immune cells from the donor bone marrow attack the cancer cells. Unfortunately, this too failed.
For the first time ever, a person’s life has been saved by geneediting. One-year-old Layla was dyingfromleukaemia after all conventional treatments failed.
She was suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. She had received all the conventional treatments with no success, but her parents would not give up hope of their child being cured.
World’s firstgene-edited babies created in China, claims scientist.
For the first time in history, a life has been saved by geneediting. After all conventional treatments failed to provide positive results, 1-year-old Layla and her family believed the girl would diefromleukemia.
It also departs from conventional gene therapy in that geneediting not only allows new genes to be inserted in the

Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia occurs mainly in adults. This type of cancer is treated using gleevec (imatinib). CML is caused by a chromosome mutation that spontaneously occurs.

An infant with ‘incurable’ leukemia was the world’s firstleukemia patient to be sucessfully treated with the experimental technique of geneediting.
A baby girl in the UK has been cleared of leukaemia following an experimental immunotherapy using gene-edited cells. It is the first time a therapy using the
Speaking at a genome summit in Hong Kong, He Jiankui said he was "proud" of altering the genes of twin girls so they could not contract HIV.

A baby girl who was close to dyingfrom cancer has been rescued by a cell therapy envisioned as a “one size fits all” treatment that had never been tested in
In most eyes, geneediting is unjust since the technology is limited to individuals. Researchers are mainly testing on reproductive cells to prevent children from having the condition.
“One-year-old Layla was dyingfromleukaemia after all conventional treatments failed. “We didn’t want to give up on our daughter, though, so we asked the
This is the first time geneediting has saved a human life.
Removing leukemia from an infant girl in London is the first example of gene-editing techniques successfully used in human cancer treatment.
For the first time ever, doctors use gene-edited immune cells to treat "incurable" leukemiain little girl.
In what could be one of the largest medical breakthroughs in decades, doctors at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London appear to have successfully cured an infant girl of leukemia using a new technology called geneediting. The girl had failed to respond to more conventional treatment...

Girl, seven, is 'scarred for life' after medics had to cut off blisters she suffered from black henna tattoo at posh hotel salon.
The world’s firstgene-edited human babies have been born in China. Professor Jiankui He claims that by removing a specific gene from the embryos using CRISPR-Cas9, the twin girls would have a natural immunity to HIV. But scientists question the safety, effectiveness and morality of the procedure.

Layla could now be the first person in the world to have been saved by geneediting. Two-year-old Layla — her surname is being withheld to protect her privacy as she grows up — has been clear of leukaemia for long enough that doctors are now prepared to talk in terms of a potential cure.
Gene therapy poses one of the greatest technical challenges in modern medicine. It is very hard to introduce new genes into cells of the body and keep them working. And there are financial concerns: Can a company profit from developing a gene therapy to treat a rare disorder?
In this Oct. 10, 2018 photo, He Jiankui is reflected in a glass panel as he works at a computer at a laboratory in Shenzhen in southern China's Guangdong province. Chinese scientist He claims he helped make world's first genetically edited babies: twin girls whose DNA he said he altered.
The firstgenomeediting technologies were developed in the late 1900s. More recently, a new genomeediting tool called CRISPR, invented in 2009, has made it easier than ever to edit DNA. CRISPR is simpler, faster, cheaper, and more accurate than older genomeediting methods.
A baby girl who had an aggressive form of leukaemia is now cancer-free thanks to the world’s first use of gene-edited immune cells
Geneediting, in contrast, switches out or replaces a gene at its precise location in a chromosome. The distinction isn’t just genetic jargon — it could mean the difference
A one-year-old girl diagnosed with incurable aggressive leukemia is now in remission after receiving “designer cells” from a donor.
The first person to get the new cells, which came from a healthy donor, was a little girl named Layla, who
Layla’s doctors got permission to use an experimental form of gene therapy using genetically engineered immune cells from a donor. Within a month these cells had killed off all the cancerous cells in her bone marrow. newscientist.com/article/dn28454-gene-ed... wochit.com.
