A new study published in Nature Medicine (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28714989) has demonstrated the potential for CRISPR to restore muscle function in congenital muscular dystrophy type 1A.  Researchers used CRISPR gene editing to cut the DNA in two places, allowing the aberrant region to be removed during DNA repair – effectively creating a normal splice.
