Heritable Genome Editing Not Yet Ready to Be Tried Safely and Effectively in Humans – Initial Clinical Uses, If Permitted, Should Be Limited to Serious Single-Gene Diseases

Human embryos whose genomes have been edited should really not be utilised to build a pregnancy right until it is proven that precise genomic changes can be built reliably without introducing undesired changes — a criterion that has not but been met by any genome modifying technological innovation, suggests a new report by an international commission of the U.S. Nationwide Academy of Medication, U.S. Nationwide Academy of Sciences, and the U.K.’s Royal Society.
