Exactly! What are the further possibilities if you can do this on one “area”, can it be used on other “defects”?

Please search radiolab and crispr. They did a story about 8 years ago, it’s two parts and very interesting.

I didn’t realize we were already using crispr in people, but it does have the possibility of changing healthcare forever.

Thanks 🙏

My daughter has Vitiligo, and uses methotrexate so this is very interesting if this DNA defect could be rewritten, to avoid the side effect of the chemotherapy!
