Safer CRISPR Gene editing with Fewer Off-Target Hits

Safer CRISPR Gene editing with Fewer Off-Target Hits

The CRISPR system is a powerful tool for the targeted editing of genomes, with significant therapeutic potential, but runs the risk of inappropriately editing "off-target" sites. However, a new study shows that mutating the enzyme at the heart of the CRISPR gene editing system can improve its fidelity.

Feasibility Trials for First Interventional Neuromodulation Platform

Feasibility Trials for First Interventional Neuromodulation Platform

The study is the first clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Stentrode, the first interventional neuromodulation platform. This technology is designed to translate brain activity from the inside of a blood vessel, and is being explored for its potential to enable hands-free control of devices for people with upper limb paralysis.

Smartwatches as a Medical Device? Progress and Outlook from IDTechEx

Last week, Apple announced the latest features that will be added to the Apple Watch in watchOS 7. Amongst the range of updates were a series of new health app features, including new "mobility metrics" such as low-range cardio fitness, walking speed, stair-descent speed, stair-ascent speed, six-minute walk distance, double support time, step length, and asymmetry.
