Here's a more optimistic article:
"Khalili admits further work must to be done in order to make the technique suitable for testing on human subjects, however he is confident that the eradication of HIV and AIDS may be possible with this new treatment."
I sure hope that this CRISPR thing recognizes *only* HIV. Wouldn't want this thing inside you cutting up the wrong genes accidentally.
Yup. I hope they would think of some kind of secondary fail safe method that would stop the thing from continuing. Like something to mute or halt it if something goes wrong. They should be developing that along side it's own creation.
