CRISPR-Edited Stem Cells in a Patient with HIV and Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia

Researchers based in China used CRISPR to edit hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) to make the gene CCR5 non-functional, which makes cells resistant to HIV-1. The CRISPR-edited CCR5-ablated HSPCs were transplanted into a patient with HIV-1 infection and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which was in remission. Although there was long-term engraftment of the edited HSPCs, only about 5% of lymphocytes contained the CCR5 disruption.

Understanding every step in the life cycle of a virus is crucial for identifying potential targets for treatment. Now, scientists at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria were able to show how a virus from the retrovirus family--the same family as HIV--protects its genetic information and becomes infectious. Furthermore, they show an unexpected flexibility of the virus. This study is published in the journal Nature Communications.
