Doctors first used the technology for editing DNA

Врачи впервые применили технологию редактирования ДНК

American scientists eye Institute Casey at the University of health and science of Oregon in Portland for the first time in the world to use the editing technology CRISPR genes to treat inherited form of blindness in the patient, writes the Associated Press.

A man diagnosed with Leber Ambros (a congenital form of blindness) put into the eye a solution which needs to edit the mutation of the diseased cells.

The result will be known in a month, but doctors believe that the restoration of visual function in a patient is successful.

In this case, the doctors, you can open a whole new direction for developing drugs of this type, or even declare a new era in medicine.
