  1. No designer babies, but gene editing to avoid disease? MaybeRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 14 | Canada.com

    Don't expect designer babies any time soon - but a major new ethics report leaves open the possibility of one day altering human heredity to fight genetic diseases, with stringent oversight, using new tools that precisely edit genes inside living cells. What's called genome editing already is transforming biological research, and being used to develop treatments for patients struggling with a range of diseases.

  2. Scientific committee draws line at using gene editing to create designer babiesRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 14 | Penticton Herald

    Genome editing, a powerful technology that allows researchers to add, remove or replace snippets of DNA from cells, should only be used for the potential treatment or prevention of serious diseases and disabilities - not to produce "designer babies" with traits that could be passed on to future generations, an international committee of scientists says. In a report released Tuesday, the U.S. National Academies of Sciences and Medicine outlined recommendations for global researchers as they go forward with clinical trials using genome-editing technology, which has raised ethical concerns among both scientists and the public.

  6. Genome-edited humans get green-light from expert panelRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 14 | Ars Technica

    Editing the genomes of human embryos should be allowable to treat or prevent serious diseases and disabilities-but only amid stringent oversight and safety protocols and only if no reasonable alternatives exist-according to a report released Tuesday by the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine. The endorsement, however cautious, is a reversal from some previous recommendations from experts and ethicists, who have considered making heritable alterations to humans unequivocally off-limits.

  8. Scientific Panel Says Editing Heritable Human Genes Could Be OK In The FutureRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 14 | WGBH

    Editing human genes that would be passed on for generations could make sense if the diseases are serious and the right safeguards are in places, a scientific panel says. Scientists could be allowed to make modifications in human DNA that can be passed down through subsequent generations, the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine say.

    Tuesday Feb 14 | PhysOrg Weblog

    Clinical trials for genome editing of the human germline - adding, removing, or replacing DNA base pairs in gametes or early embryos - could be permitted in the future, but only for serious conditions under stringent oversight, says a new report from the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine. The report outlines several criteria that should be met before allowing germline editing clinical trials to go forward.

    Tuesday Feb 14 | NatureNews

    Scientists should be permitted to modify human embryos destined for implantation in the womb to eliminate devastating genetic diseases such as sickle-cell anaemia or cystic fibrosis - once gene-editing techniques advance sufficiently for use in people and proper restrictions are in place. That's the conclusion of a 14 February report from the US National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine.
