    Wei Zhao:
    "Based on known mutations, a small number of Prime Editors should be able to restore functional protein for >50% of the DMD patients.
    Similarly, Prime Editors targeting mutations in 7 hotspots or at prevalent mutations should be able to help >90% of CF patients."

    Wei Zhao:
    "3 major classes of gene editors: nucleases, base editors and prime editors. Only the latter two can achieve precise gene correction in vivo with high efficiency. While base can correct ~30% of disease-causing mutations, prime can correct ~90% of them"
    "The common concern on prime editing is its relatively moderate editing efficiency in primary human cells, especially in its early days. But with its latest technological advancement, newly disclosed data from Prime's S-1 showed that this concern is no longer justified."
    "Another common concern on prime editing is that prime editor is too big to be delivered to organs. Similarly, this concern is no longer justified. Prime's S-1 has provided POC data using LNP or dual AAV to deliver prime editors to mouse liver and CNS."

    "Nothing is more exciting than the proposed IPO of Prime Medicine!
    Congratulations to Andrew,
    @davidrliu
    , and many others!
    A great moment for many patients suffering from genetic diseases, a new hope is on the horizon!
    Also fantastic news for all Beam's shareholders."

    Wei Zhao: On Prime Editing
    "Chronic granulomatous disease: ~55% precise correction of ΔGT mutation at NCF genes in human primary HSCs ... show long-term and high-level engraftment of the edited CD34 cells in bone marrow in mice."
    "Wilson’s Disease: precise correction of H1069Q ATP7B (A>C correction) in 75% (really nice!) of cells in human hepatocyte lines and similar results for R778L mutation (T>G correction).
    "There may be ~10,000 H1069Q patients in US and Europe, so this should be a good program."
    Such high editing efficiency in HSCs and hepatocyte is also great news for Beam, which has exclusive rights to use prime editing for A>G, G>A, C>T, T>C corrections without generating any bystander. Those 4 transition point mutations make up ~60% of all point mutations."

    “Commitment to America” based on four priorities:

    * Strengthen economy- like more to wealthy and less to hard working workers
    * Public safety - like role it worked in Uvade School
    * Parents/schools- yes- both parties - have made without addressing with NPIs- one said herd immunity with infection and another said vaccination- because chamber of commerce thinks so- with disabilities on a roll- with fewer workers. Now one party wants to increase retirement age to 70 years and life expectancy allready fallen from 78 to 76 years in USA
    * Government accountability- Yep - like documents of national security - can just by declassified by man - who thinks he was a elected a king.

    The Thwaites Glacier — dubbed the “doomsday glacier” because scientists estimate that without it and its supporting ice shelves, sea levels could rise more than 3 to 10 feet — is disintegrating faster than predicted. That's bad news- for all of us who do not question Climate Science.

    Depressed stock prices during a recession might make for a good time to load up

    OT: To date, there have been just shy of TWO MILLION illegal immigrants apprehended at the border which has been largely ignored by the mainstream media. Yesterday bus loaded with them was dropped off in front of Kamala's home, our underperforming Border Czar, and on Marthas Vineyard, the home of the progressive policies that have led to the border problem.
    Well played Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis, well played.

    Real causes of inflation in USA:
    The current high inflation rate can be attributed to many different factors, many of which are a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Gapen pins rising prices on three general causes — increases in household demand and supply-chain shortages due to the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the presence of a strong labor market.
