RVC By Chelsea Whyte CRISPR gene-editing has been used to improve muscle function in dogs with a condition similar to Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) – and the technique might one day lead to a treatment for humans. The study represents the first use of CRISPR gene-editing in a living large animal. People with DMD have a genetic mutation that makes them unable to produce dystrophin,
