Exclusive: Victoria Gray, who has sickle cell disease, has volunteered for the first U.S. attempt to use the gene-editing technique CRISPR to treat a genetic disorder. "I always had hoped that something will come along," she told NPR.
CRISPR used to treat sickle cell anemia
. exclusive: A patient with sickle cell disease is the first in the U.S. to get a treatment that uses the revolutionary CRISPR gene-editing tool in an attempt to fix defective red blood cells. #CRISPR
BREAKING NEWS: shares the story of Victoria, 1st person to join a #clinicaltrial designed to help treat #sicklecell disease. It is an honor to be a part of Victoria’s story & to work w/ Dr. Frangoul

A mother of four who has sickle cell disease discusses why she volunteered for the first attempt to use CRISPR gene-editing to treat a genetic disease. "This gives me hope if it gives me nothing else," Gray said.
Victoria Gray, who has sickle cell disease, is the first person in the U.S. to receive an experimental treatment that uses CRISPR to alter genes. It’s part of an effort to alleviate the effects of a genetic disease.
"People with sickle cell disease have been waiting a long time for therapies that just let them live a normal life," Dr. David Altshuler said. A new landmark study in the U.S. will attempt to CRISPR gene-editing to treat a genetic disease.

Sickle Cell Patient Reveals Why She Is Volunteering For Landmark Gene-Editing Study
First patient with sickle cell enrolled in CRISPR gene-editing trial () - target of CRISPR therapeutic BCL11A first identified through GWAS in 2007
A wonderful report from about the use of editing for sickle/thal. chose to do a Cas9 "fast-follow," precisely copying ZFN approach (PMID 30182035 and ). More shots on goal = patients win.
