The research done at Oregon Health and Science University did not allow the human embryos to develop for more than a few days.
The scientists reportedly used a technique called CRISPR, which allows sections of DNA to be altered or replaced.
To date, just three teams - all in China - have published results in scientific journals. With gene editing, these so-called "germline" changes are permanent and would be passed down to any offspring.
Scientists like Mitalipov believe they can eradicate or correct genes that cause inherited disease and even cancer by altering the DNA of human embryos.
The trouble with mosaicism is that there is no sure way to detect it before implanting an embryo into the uterus.
Hospital says it would like Charlie Gard to go home if practical
Very few people who develop the condition in infancy survive to their teenage years, and there is now no known treatment for it. Michio Hirano, a neurology expert at New York's Columbia Medical Center and from the Vatican's Babino Gesu pediatric hospital.
Basically, a genetic scalpel, CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat) allows users to slice parts of DNA in living cells to remove existing genes or add new ones.
"But Mitalipov and his team are said to have convincingly shown that it is possible to avoid both mosaicism and "off-target" effects, as the "CRISPR" errors are known", the report noted. Technology Review could not determine which disease genes had been chosen for editing.
'I don't think it's the start of clinical trials yet, but it does take it further than anyone has before'.
A scientist who is familiar with the project but chose to remain anonymous said: "It is proof of principle that it can work". In the United States, this kind of research is much more controversial: there's even a ban on using National Institutes of Health funding for research using gene-editing technologies in human embryos. Then, in 2013, he created human embryos through cloning, as a way of creating patient-specific stem cells. It's unclear what illnesses were involved exactly, but they used sperm donated by subjects with various inheritable diseases. Many are drooling to engage in eugenic genetic enhancements.
Currently, any effort to turn an edited human embryo into a baby in the United States is banned by Congress. However, there are many countries without such legal restrictions.
