Using mRNA Technology to Bring a Genetic Cure for Hereditary Blindness

RNA technology may deliver genetic fix to hereditary blindness

A team of scientists has developed a way to deliver genetic fix to hereditary blindness, a condition that is caused by a lack of a gene that produces a visual pigment.

The new method, which is still in development, relies on natural RNA molecules to deliver the fix. The team is also working on a way to non-destructively clone the gene that carries the fix.

The project is a significant step forward in developing a cure for hereditary blindness, which is one of the world’s most common diseases. The challenge is identifying the cause of the condition and finding a way to fix it.

This project is also important because it could lead to the development of new ways to diagnose and treat hereditary blindness. There are many causes of hereditary blindness, and the new method could help to identify and treat the most common ones.

The project is beingfunded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program.
