TwinPE: An improved genome-editing tool that allows inserting entire genes for gene therapy

Researchers at the Broad Institute of Harvard University have just reported in the scientific journal Nature Biotechnology an improved version of prime editing, the highly accurate genome editing method developed in 2019 by the same team. This new version, called twin prime editing (twinPE), allows insertion of DNA fragments of the size of a gene into specific sites of the...

Novel high-precision gene therapy to correct an eye disease in mice

Researchers from the Seoul National University (Korea) have applied for the first an improved genome-editing methodology, named prime editing to correct the genetic defects of two animal models of human disease: a liver disease (hereditary tyrosinemia) and an eye disease (Leber congenital amaurosis). This high-precision genome-editing tool, developed only two years ago by the team of David R. Liu from...

Direct reprogramming of skin cells into photoreceptors in mice

27/05/20 - Research, Therapy, Cell Therapy,

The end result of many retinal dystrophies is photoreceptor cell death and the irreversible loss of vision. To prevent the progressive loss of retinal neurons, and to slow down or reverse the progression of the disease, gene therapies are currently under study to correct or replace the altered genes responsible for different retinopathies. Another therapeutic strategy that is under intensive...

A third of the world’s population carries mutations associated with retinal dystrophies

A very recent study published in the scientific journal PNAS highlights an estimate, on a global scale, of the frequency of individuals carrying pathogenic mutations responsible for inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD) and illustrates the prevalence of this group of diseases. These data are highly relevant for genetic diagnosis, genetic counselling and the design of new therapies. The authors studied the...

Macular Week: Recent advances in pharmacotherapy for Stargardt disease

25/06/19 - Research, Patients, Stargardt,

Macular Week is all about sensitizing and informing patients, associations, professionals and society of latest achievements on macular degenerative pathologies. In this publication, we will focus on the news on orphan drugs that are currently in the clinical or preclinical phase for the treatment of Stargardt disease. Stargardt disease, the most common inherited macular dystrophy, is characterized by the progressive...
