CRISPR/Cas9 is a powerful technique which employs naturally occuring sequences in the human genome for modification of gene- and therefore cellular- function. Although this genome editing technology is relatively new, it has almost limitless potential to heal and cure.
A paper in the 12 October 2016 issue of Nature, for example, details the early indications of success in a CRISPR/Cas9 treatment for Sickle Cell disease.
The ability to very closely control a change in the genetic makep of a cell is significant because the more specific the change made in a genome, the less likely an unintended consequence will occur.
