Researchers from King's College London designed a gene therapy that can be switched off once it has treated a spinal cord injury.
Boosting the process cells use to throw out toxic substances could point to new drug targets for diseases like Alzheimer's.
Scientists at Duke have identified a pathway in the liver that they believe could be manipulated to reduce the deposition of fat in the liver, as well as glucose regulation.
Switching on the LZK gene in mice with spinal cord injuries led to a smaller scar, which might improve healing.
Targeting "clusters" of mutations with CRISPR could lead to a treatment that could work for up to 60% of patients with DMD.

IBM Watson was set to announce new partnerships on Monday, but reports of the company’s partnership with MD Anderson being put on hold may have stolen its thunder.
The use of photodynamic therapy in cancer treatment has been hampered by the limited penetration of light to the target tumor. Now a research team has shown that photosensitizers can be activated by microwaves which can reach deeper tumors. The results may lead to improved cancer treatment.
University of Texas at Arlington researchers are developing a method to control blood pressure via electrical stimulation rather than drugs.
