Chinese scientist He Jian Kui, who has announced a moral storm after the announcement of the first two genetic changes in children in # 39; The world said he was proud of his work as on Wednesday and another volunteer who was involved in his research was heavy.
He, an assistant professor at the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, China, provided a discussion of 700 people at the Hong Kong Human Genome University Amendment Summit University. At the beginning of the measure, he was determined to find out the results of the study.
"I'm proud … this study was submitted to a scientific journal for the review," he said, but called the science magazine and stated that the university he worked was not aware of & # 39; study.
He said his work itself was financially invested and confirmed that the study was confidential that he was in contact with the scientific community for the past three years. He said in an online video recording this week he got a technology that was awarded as Crisper-Cass 9 to modify Jenny twin twins called Lulu and Nana this month.
He added that genetic modification could protect the infection of HIV infection, but the Chinese government and scientists did the job that he had done, and indicated a hospital related to the study that he had adopted his consent.
CRISPER-KAS 9-technology provides scientists to copy and enhance DNA genetic hygiene, increase in hope for genetic prevention of disease prevention.
But there are concerns about safety and ethics. More than 100 scientists say in an open letter on Tuesday that the use of Crysper-K9 technology of human embryonic changes is risky and unjust. "They opened the gates of hell," they looked.
He has eight pairs registered to participate in the search first and then one out. The study requires that the father be promoted to HIV and that the mother is not infected.
He adds that the results can be applied to millions of people with underlying diseases and that he would look at the 18-year-olds and hope they can continue to evaluate.
