Two children have been cancer-free for up to 18 months after receiving a controversial gene-editing therapy



A new cancer treatment helped two children with leukemia be disease-free for up to 18 months, new research reveals.
One of the infants has shown no signs of the condition for 16 months, while the other has been in remission for a year-and-a-half, a new study found.
The youngsters received an immune-boosting treatment alongside a gene-editing technique, known as TALENS, that altered their DNA.
