Global CRISPR and CAS Gene Market, By Product Type (Vector-based Cas and DNA-free Cas), By Application (Genome Engineering, Disease models, Functional Genomics, Knockdown/activation, and Other Applications), By End User (Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies, Academic Government Research Institutes, and Contract Research Organizations), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 1,388.1 million in 2017, and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 20.8% over the forecast period (2018 - 2026), as highlighted in a new report published by .
Manufacturers in the CRISPR and CAS gene are collaborating with many companies for sponsoring clinical trials. Editas Medicine has licensed CRISPR and other gene editing patent rights from the Broad Institute, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, and others. In March 2017, Editas reportedly entered into an agreement with Irish pharmaceutical company Allergan under, which Editas was to receive a US$ 90 million up-front payment for an option to license up to five preclinical programs targeting eye disease.
Moreover, various organizations are also focusing on new clinical trials for the CRISPR and CAS gene for cancer treatment. In 2018, CRISPR Therapeutics and Vertex launched the first in-human clinical trial of CRISPR genome editing technology sponsored by U.S. companies. The trial is testing an experimental therapy for the blood disorder β-thalassemia in Regensburg, Germany.
