The world's first HIV-1 DNA transplant case – BBC Thai
Experts in China's scientific circles and from around the world. They expressed doubts that Professor He Yao, a genetic researcher from Shenzhen, announced it. Humana embryos can be trimmed with advanced techniques. "CRISPR-CINNINE" (CRISPR-Cas9) is the first child in the world to have HIV infection.
The doubts that many people have about this scientific experiment. In addition, I do not really do the cut as claimed. Many experts also criticized it. This action violates the code of conduct. So far, the Xinhua News Agency reported that the Chinese National Health Commission (CNHC) has ordered investigating this matter is urgent.
Former Prof. He has been cited as saying via video recorded by the news agency and published on the website UB. The female twins born from the transgender have opened their eyes to the world a few weeks ago. Both children assume the names "Lulu" and "Nana".
He graduated from Stanford University in the United States, also claimed that he had used the Chris Perry-Nine technology. This is the way to cut the gene to correct the genetic defects that are high precision. Removal of the CCR5 gene in the embryos of both children. This will cause the twin girls not to be infected with HIV if they are exposed or infected in the future.
"These twin children were born with the usual tube enhancer, but after his father's sperm were mixed with the mother's egg. We immediately put a set of sequencing and sequencing in the embryo." To make the child's genetic change as needed, "said Professor.
But globally, genetic modification in human embryos is unacceptable for serious ethical research in biomedical science. In many countries, including Britain, there are clearly prohibited laws. This is especially true in cases where embryos from embryonic spread continue to be infants and eventually born.
General Transgenic Embryonic Stem Cell Transplant Laboratory That Has Donated Must Destroy All Embryo Tests. I can not be sure of this time. How does genetic manipulation affect long-term genetic diversity in humans? Or will it affect the health of the person being cut off in the future? It can also encourage the medical industry. "Baby by order", which has the same physical and intellectual characteristics that parents want.
Prof. Hee, however, claims that he has only invented a way to make future children healthy. Did not want to produce "Order Order Children", but I do not understand. "I understand my work will be a matter of debate. But I think parents and many families need this technique. I'm willing to criticize them."
But it seems that many parties are involved. Including the hospital carrying the twins. And the South University of Science and Technology in China, I do not agree with the message of his success in this. The university issued a statement. No part of the research. Prof. Hee went to the lab outside the university under the resort without payroll tax since the beginning of the year. It is also said that Prof. Hao. "Violation of academic norms and ethics"
However, it has been reported that genetic modification in the professor's human embryo. He may have approved the Chinese Ethics Committee's approval last year. The evidence in the Chinese Clinical Trials Register (ChiCTR)
Dr Dascoe Lee, a stem cell specialist at King's College London, said that human embryonic stem cell transplantation is in this case. It is a violation of ethics. Due to the current situation, it is not necessary to cut genes to fight HIV infection in any way. "The drug already exists. More than enough to prevent HIV infection from mother to child. It also controls the spread of the disease," says Dr. Eli.
Prof. Julian W. Woolsey, Ethics Researcher at Oxford University In general, human embryo transplantation It is intended to correct the mutation of genes that cause various diseases such as cancer in the future. But soft glass. I used this experiment to get a normal and perfect genetic strength. It is the gene that causes the child to risk the abnormalities that may arise from the experiment.
More than 100 Chinese researchers have issued a joint statement condemning the professor's actions. He claimed he had metamorphic success without expert confirmation and failed to publish a reliable academic journal. It also calls on the government to regulate this code of ethics.
"This event undermines the reputation of the Chinese scientific community in the eyes of the world. It prevented the development of biomedical research in the country." It is not fair for most Chinese researchers. "We are committed to researching and innovating actively."
