Title: CRISPR-Based Therapeutic Genome Editing: Strategies and In Vivo Delivery by AAV Vectors
Author: Dan Wang, Feng Zhang, Guangping Gao
Abstract: The development of clustered regularly interspaced short-palindromic repeat (CRISPR)-based biotechnologies has revolutionized the life sciences and introduced new therapeutic modalities with the potential to treat a wide range of diseases. Here, we describe CRISPR-based strategies to improve human health, with an emphasis on the delivery of CRISPR therapeutics directly into the human body using adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors. We also discuss challenges facing broad deployment of CRISPR-based therapeutics and highlight areas where continued discovery and technological development can further advance these revolutionary new treatments.
