Gene-editing hope for muscular dystrophy

As someone who has now lost three good friends to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, I want to flag this bbc story up. A potential new cure//treatment has been found. Of course, as ever, the researchers are staying pretty cautious  about it for now, but from what I read the results look promising.  I’ve seen first hand what DMD can do to boys and their families; it is one of the only disabilities I think we should find a cure for. It’s just sad  that this came too late for my friends.
