Diabetes reversed in mice with genetically edited stem cells derived from patients: CRISPR corrects genetic defect so cells can normalize blood sugar

Researchers have used induced pluripotent stem cells produced from the skin of a patient with a rare, genetic form of insulin-dependent diabetes, transformed the stem cells into insulin-producing cells, used the CRISPR gene-editing tool to correct a defect that caused the diabetes, and implanted the cells into mice to reverse diabetes in the animals.
