Regulators and medical experts have expressed persecution in a statement by Chinese scientist who used Chirp Technology to create the world's first genetically modified children with twins.
DNA strands are cut off to disable or modify defective genes in defective technology.
In a YouTube video posted on Sunday, he told Xinqiao of the Shenzhen University of Science and Technology that children – known as Lulu and smaller to protect their secrecy – were born a few weeks ago "children as any other healthy."
He is active in many genetically engineered companies, including direct genomics, which raised 218 million yuan ($ 31.4 million) in April. He said that the girls were conceived by Vitro Fertilization, but little proteins and suggestions were added to mother's eggs and their father's sperm for "genetic surgery".
According to available information, the children's father is HIV positive and has been genetically modified to suppress the CCR5 gene, which allows HIV to contaminate the cells.
"When Lulu and Nana had only one cell, then the surgery removes the entry where HIV is infecting people," he said.
But yesterday, the state council of medical ethics experts in Shenzhen started the investigation of "moral issues" surrounding this case.
According to documents filed before the clinical trial run by Han, Harmonicar Hospital for women and children in Shenzhen sanctioned the experiment. But local media said that he refused to be involved in the case in the hospital.
She did not return to the interview application.
The other international summit of the Human Gnome Conference was not published in Hong Kong this week, in specific journals, where they were subjected to strict analysis by other scientists.
Some scientists warned that this has left many unanswered questions, while others have shown caution about the moral effects of the work quoted by Hay, which is legal in China, but is banned in the United States, the United Kingdom and many other countries. More than a hundred Chinese scientists and academics signed a joint statement yesterday, describing the experiment as "crazy".
Professor Joyce Harper of Human Embryology at University College London, Mr. Hena claims "is premature, risky, and unnecessary."
Dian Nicolle, director of the Center for Law and Genetics at Tasmania University, said that the repetition of genes, which will be passed on future generations, is "always serious problem for society".
"Not in future generations [por não terem nascido ainda]"She said," So we have a parent's consent. "
Professor Nicole warned that the risk of genetic editing is "mostly unpredictable".
"although [técnica] When you apply it in the cell, chrispe is considered to be more reliable, you are confident that it will go to the proper place of genome and do the right thing. But when you are putting something in the cell there is always a risk, it can go to the wrong part of GNOME or it can affect it on which we are unaware. "
There are many other ways to avoid HIV contamination: Dusco Leik, a stem cell scientist at King College London.
