This @NatureMedicine paper shows 1 year after IM injection of #CRISPR AAV-SaCas9 for DMD:
-> editing event still occur 6 months after IM
-> immune response is seen within weeks & sustained
- on-target effects < 5% with AAV integration in genome

@NatureMedicine I have additional comments on this paper:

1/ it is great to see a year follow up after AAV injection. Important to see more of those.

2/ Immunogenicity of AAV and Cas9 are now well documented and this work confirm it. Interestingly Neonatal injection seems to overcome it
3/ Off target effects are minimal & again in line with previously reports (Table S1 & S2)

4/ Interestingly they found on-target effects with deletion, integration of AAV or increase circular RNA. Nextera technique is interesting. Would have loved to see some long read sequencing

Our review paper on the interaction between the host innate immunity and Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria is now out ! Fei-Ju, PhD student in the lab did an amazing job going through the literature. Sadly under #paywall…
We reviewed all the known factors in Acinetobacter bacteria (LPS, T6SS, Omp, CPS...) that are interacting with the host and especially innate immunity and inflammasome.
Please have a look and read it if you are interested. Alternatively the paper is available here…

Finally the comments to Mitalipov’s group paper on #CRISPR in human embryos are out in @nature as well as the rebuttal from Ma et al. as brief communications arising #paywall. Let’s have a look more in details -> Thread
One of the major finding of the Ma et al. paper was the discovery of high frequency of inter-homologous repair mechanisms aka loss of heterozygocity LOH -> 1 allele is used as a template for
#CRISPR-HDR -> WT alleles are in fact alleles from the maternal alleles only.
We have been debating a lot on this in the last year or so. The first important comment from @Fatwa_Adikusuma et al is Ma et al. missed deleted alleles. In the paper they edited 6 loci in zygotes and EScells and checked for large deletions…
