Promising treatment for sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia

All over the world, people are affected, and doctors hope one treatment that promises to alter the DNA in blood cells can be the tool to help cure sickle cell diseases and beta-thalassemia. In addition to the alternation of the blood cells, they need the help of CRISPR. I believe it can help because with both sickle cell and beta-thalassemia, they have issues within the body that can be fixed by the treatment. With sickle cell, many have blood that clots up and causes a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the body. While beta-thalassemia has no normal hemoglobin, which causes suffering of breathing issues making the patients get transfusions every so often to help them. I believe if they find a way to have CRISPR and blood cells mixed correctly, it can help many people get better and have less pain.,like%20sickles%20or%20crescent%20moons.,many%20parts%20of%20the%20body.
