Just hours away from the opening of the Second International Summit on Genome Editing in Hong Kong, and following a report in Technology Review, the Associated Press reported that a Chinese researcher, Dr Jiankui He was claiming to have performed genome editing in human embryos resulting in the birth of twin girls this month.
Dr. He maintains that he transferred embryos that had been edited to inactivate a gene called CCR5, which, in its active state, forms a protein that allows HIV to enter a cell. The babies are reportedly healthy, but information is scattered and inconsistent, with no formal peer review verification or data accompanying the claims.[Visit Site]
The first births from genome edited human embryos have been announced by a Chinese researcher amid widespread condemnation, and fears over safety.
Experts have strongly criticised a claim that embryos lost during a storage tank failure at a fertility clinic were 'people'.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has signed a consensus statement calling for private IVF clinics to stop charging patients costly optional add-on treatments that are not proven to work.
The number of children born per woman has halved globally since 1950, according to a study published in The Lancet.
Researchers found that although the global population has roughly tripled from 2.6 billion to 7.6 billion, the fertility rate has dropped from 4.7 live births per woman in 1950 to 2.4 in 2017. As well as women having better access to education, employment and health services, the fall in fertility rate has been attributed to better infant survival rate and an increase in the average age of marriage.
Improvements in the success rates of IVF treatment have been cited as part of the reason fewer people are choosing to adopt children in the UK, despite the number of children currently in care reaching a record high.
IVF treatment has risen from around seven percent success per cycle to around 30 percent for women under 35 years.
