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 must not be utilized to produce a being pregnant until eventually it is proven that precise genomic changes can be made reliably with out introducing undesired changes — a criterion that has not but been satisfied by any genome modifying technology, states a new report by an international fee of the U.S. Countrywide Academy of Medicine, U.S. Countrywide Academy of Sciences, and the U.K.’s Royal Culture.
