The original reports of research by Chinese biophysicist He Jiankui on genetically modified infants appeared for the first time, and the experiment was alleged to have failed. Jankui is accused of misleading and lying to the authorities.

China’s gene regulation to genetically engineered twins to immunize HIV may have failed and may have caused unwanted mutations. Excerpts from the actual research of the MIT Technology Review show that Chinese biophysicist He Jiankui ignored the ethical and scientific norms in the creation of twins Lula and Nana, whose births led to the debate of the scientific world.

It was not clear whether the medical breakthrough aimed at controlling the HIV outbreak was successful. Because the research team was unable to regenerate the gene mutation that gave immunity to infants. Fyodor Urnov, a genome-regulating scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, told the MIT Technology Review, “The obvious misrepresentation of actual data, claiming that they reproduce the current CCR5 shift, can only be defined by one term: a deliberate lie.”
