Advancements in Gene Editing: Using CRISPR-Cas9 and Gene Drive Technology to Neutralize Viruses

Anonymous,  News Directory 3,  2023.

Researchers from the US Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center recently published research results in the international academic journal “Nature” demonstrating that herpes virus type 1 (HSV-1) was neutralized using “Gene Drive” technology . Gene drive refers to a technology that changes the genes of a specific organism and affects the entire organism. The international academic journal Science said: “Scientists highly appreciate the potential of gene drive technology” and added: “It could be an opportunity to pave the way for modifying viral populations through genetic manipulation and using it as a new treatment.”
