🧬 Gene-editing breakthrough
Axios illustration about CRISPR
 

Illustration: Rebecca Zisser/Axios

 

The FDA on Friday took a big step toward ending the most common inherited blood disorder by approving a pair of gene therapies for sickle cell disease — a debilitating sickness that affects an estimated 100,000 Americans, mostly of African descent.

  • Why it matters: It's the first FDA-approved therapy using the CRISPR gene-editing system, a kind of genetic scissors whose discovery won a Nobel Prize in 2020, Axios' Adriel Bettelheim writes.
  • The new treatments edit genes directly in a patient's body and expand the kinds of diseases and conditions researchers can target to other blood disorders, certain cancers and infectious diseases.

🥊 Reality check: The treatments are both grueling and could cost millions of dollars, raising questions about equity and access.

  • Patients first have to undergo extensive chemotherapy to rid their bodies of the defective cells and make way for reengineered ones — a process that may not be appropriate for older or frail patients.
  • There's also the risk of "off target" edits that zero in on the wrong genetic sequence and could increase the risk of developing cancer.

Go deeper.
