Moratorium on Gene Editing in human embryos

ESHRE supports the call for a moratorium on the use of CRISPR/Cas9 nucleases in the human embryo for clinical applications (Nature 567, 165-168 (2019)). This powerful genetic tool can be programmed easily to facilitate the correction of genetic mutations seamlessly and at high efficiency. Although the technology is already revolutionizing preclinical biomedical research, multiple independent reports have raised awareness that the CRISPR/Cas9 system can cause unexpected alterations to genomic DNA resulting in potentially damaging mutagenic events.
