No idea.

But CRSPR and vertex had been placed on a clinical hold for sickle cell before.

LogicBio was placed on hold by the FDA (Im unsure of details)

Plus abbvie ended its Editas agreement.

I thought there was another CRISPR system based related death recently, but I cant seem to find it (maybe I'm making this up)...

But there are alot of red flags here; I view CRISPR tech as a whole like "if there is smoke there is fire" ... this isnt like when PARPs were coming out and a bunch of them worked, nor checkpoint inhibitors. Hell, its not even CAR-T where a bunch work but at a big cost / high risk.
