How to use #CRISPR gene editing to fight heart disease, the #1 killer worldwide:

A thread 10+ years in the making.

This one starts in 2009 when I was a postdoc in @skathire lab @MassGeneralNews/@broadinstitute studying ❤ risk factors like cholesterol & triglycerides.


Inspired by work from Boileau/Seidah/Breslow/Horton/Hobbs/Cohen/et al.:

1. Activating PCSK9 mutations = ⬆️LDL cholesterol

2. Inactivating mutations = ⬇️LDL & ⬇️heart disease

3. People with no PCSK9 = ⬇️⬇️LDL & *healthy*!

We asked: are there more PCSK9’s to be discovered?

We scoured the literature and found that Dr. Gustav Schonfeld @WUSTLendo—an Auschwitz survivor, an immigrant to the US, a foremost expert on lipid metabolism—had identified 4 *healthy* siblings with a “double whammy”:

⬇️⬇️LDL & ⬇️⬇️triglycerides (TG)…

0,5% del PIL - che è la metà di quello che spendono i
Paesi del Nord Europa #UgoAmaldi
Intro/2 Ciò ha conseguenze deleterie sulla nostra
competitività perché la ricerca pubblica è il motore
dell’innovazione tecnologica e dell’introduzione di

Intro/3 Il dopo-pandemia è il momento opportuno per
colmare il ritardo italiano nella ricerca pubblica

successivi in modo da raggiungere l’1,1% del PIL nel

Review articles have hinted that #mRNA vaccines are probably safe short-term

That aligns w past $MRNA/ $BNTX Ph1/2 trials of <50 patients & yesterday's Ph1 $MRNA data (8 patients)

Why could mRNA short term safety be plausible? (Compare to early GTx/#CRISPR)

Things working in #mRNA's favor?

1). Non-integrating platform. No risk of insertional mutagenesis. Just instructs ribosomes to make proteins
2). No off target effects? (see #CRISPR)
3). Degraded by normal processes & half-life can be regulated w delivery

Alright everyone! It's been a long time, but here's a tweetstorm on the 2d oral argument in the #CRISPR #patent case between the Broad Institute and U.C.—it just concluded minutes ago. /1
For those who have been following this second round, this second interference concerns several of Broad's patents—and UC patents—issued *after* the first interference. Here's the docket:… it's Interference No. 106,115 /2
The core of this 2d interference concerns who can claim priority to using a *single guide RNA* in a generic system, i.e., one piece of RNA for both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. /3

I was writing a rebuttal to Dr Grum’s article “The Case for GMOs” @Ethiobserver . But I have to break my silence as some people, out of their utter ignorance, are relentlessly making ad hominem attacks on #GMO opponents. #Ethiopia
You can search “@kebyes GMO” so that you will learn how enthusiastic I am about the issue. Unlike others who are bashing every opinion/evidence, I like to ask questions first. That is how you learn. So please ask before resorting to attacks, PEOPLE. #Ethiopia

Important thread.

Q: What does #Imperial College, the World Economic Forum (#WEF), #Salesforce, #Sinovation Ventures (Chinese technology venture capital), #ABB (#automation technology), global artificial intelligence (#AI), all have in common?
A: #Vaccines, #EmergingMarkets, #gene editing - via the Fourth Industrial Revolution

[It is important to Important to note that on June 13, 2019 WEF officially partnered with the UN. On March 11 2020 it announced partnership w/ WHO to form "COVID Action Platform for business."

We are now entering into an exponential phase of #COVID19 in Australia. It is time to seriously act. Besides the official recommendations from WHO, Department of health, the University, it is time to seriously prepare for the outbreak, in short be ready.
The number one recommendation is to of course wash our hands. this is extremely important. Besides going into details, there are series of general recommendations from the department of Health…
Avoid public gathering such as going to conferences and seminar is important. Every hour counts and avoiding this are critical. So awaiting until Monday to ban those doesn't make a lot of sense in my view and will results in spreading #COVID19 more quickly…

Happy to share our latest work on In Vivo Systematic Mutagenesis of a Human Enhancer @AxelVisel @diane_dickel @LenPennacchio @LBNLBioSci @BerkeleyLab…

Thread👇 (1/12)
A major challenge in human genomics is how to systematically assess the phenotypic impact of enhancer variants identified in human genetics studies. Mouse transgenics is a powerful tool for this purpose but has limited throughput, high cost, and so-called position effects (2/12)
To overcome these limitations, we developed a high-throughput mouse enhancer-reporter assay (enSERT) that relies on #CRISPR/#Cas9-mediated site-specific integration of a transgene into a safe harbor location of the mouse genome and supports expression in all tissues (3/12)

Ein kleiner Exkurs ins #Gentechnik-Recht und warum derzeit so deutlich eine Änderung dieser Regelungen gefordert wird:
Grundlage für die nationalen Regelungne der EU-Mitgliedsstaaten ist die Freisetzungsrichtlinie 2001/18/EG vom 12.03.2001.…
Die GVO-Definition im Sinne der Richtlinie:
""genetisch veränderter Organismus (GVO)": ein Organismus mit Ausnahme des Menschen, dessen genetisches Material so verändert worden ist, wie es auf natürliche Weise durch Kreuzen und/oder natürliche Rekombination nicht möglich ist."
Zunächst fällt auf, dass von einem "genetisch veränderten" und nicht von einem "gentechnisch veränderten" Organismus die Rede ist. Deshalb braucht es auch den Nachsatz, dass die Veränderung nicht auf "natürliche Weise" möglich sein soll.
