About four years ago, Doctor He edited IVF germ cell's genes to have a gene that resisted HIV, the first time a genetically modified zygote was carried to term. He claims to have made three children with this method.
However, Doctor He did not do his experiment correctly, and the gene that he modified in an attempt to yield HIV resistance was not modified correctly, and the allele has never been seen before 2018 in humans.
Have we heard anything about these kids since then? Do they have immune disorders? Are they still alive?
