Outbreak of high level azithromycin resistant gonorrhoea in England

There have been 34 cases of high level azithromycin resistant gonorrhoea amongst residents of England between November 2014 and April 2016. The outbreak spread from the north of England to the West Midlands and south of England, including London. Initial cases were among heterosexuals but more recent evidence suggests high level azithromycin resistant gonorrhoea is now spreading among men who have sex with men.

HIV took just 2 weeks to overcome our best attempt to edit it out of our cells

We all got really excited a few weeks ago when researchers announced they'd removed HIV from human immune cells using new gene-editing technology called CRISPR/Cas-9, or 'CRISPR' for short, which works like a pair of molecular scissors to cut and paste DNA. As far as we know, that specific result is holding up just fine, but a separate study has now revealed that, worryingly, HIV can evolve to survive CRISPR attacks in just two weeks. Even worse, the attack itself could actually be introducing mutations that make the virus stronger.

A series of media outlets have erroneously reported that scientists may be just three years away from developing a cure for HIV. This false claim traces to an article published in the United Kingdom’s The Telegraph concerning researchers who recently succeeded in editing HIV’s genetic code out of immune cells in a laboratory setting.
